Changing your address with Misrad Hapnim – Israel Ministry of Interior Population and Immigration Authority.
Question: Can I register a change of address without appearing personally at the Ministry of the Interior? Can I do this by telephone, online or some other way? – William F.
In corona times we need to think twice before heading out to government offices or any public place for that matter. The Israel Ministry of Interior (Misrad Hapnim – משרד הפנים) gives us a few options to easily change your official address – that’s the one that appears on the ‘Sefach’ – the attachment to your Teudat Zehut (ID document).
When you present yourself in person, at the Ministry of the Interior, you will need your Teudat Zehut
If you have moved home, you will need to bring your new rental contract or some other supporting documentation that proved that you are currently residing in a different place. Residents of Eilat need to bring a proof of residence in Eilat
Divorced, separated or unmarried parents wishing to register the residence of a minor child. Your divorce agreement is required. Both parents must be present and must both present their ID documents.
If you are over the age of 18 and you are changing your official address to that of one of your parents, you will need to present written consent by that parent.
Soldiers serving in the IDF or students who wish to change their address from their parents registered address do not require written consent. However, they must present themselves in person and bring their ID document.
If you have been appointed a guardian or are someone’s guardian you must present yourself in person with your ID document.

Prior to an election
Prior to an election, you want to make sure that your address is up to date so that you will receive the official Pink Slip and details of your voting station. It would be a real pity to have to schlepp to another city or town to cast your vote, or forego your voting privilege, because you failed to register your new address.
