Effective Immediately: Passports Stamped Jerusalem, ISRAEL

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced today that ‘Israel’ will be permitted to be listed on the US passports of citizens born in Jerusalem, reversing decades of US policy that only “Jerusalem” could be listed.

Until now, US passport holders born in Jerusalem could not list their country of birth as Israel even if they were born in western Jerusalem. Until yesterday, US policy was that the status of Jerusalem was to be determined in negotiations with the Palestinian Authority. AFSI is grateful to President Trump for taking another step in the right direction.
