M.B., a son of migrants, wanted to study in Israel and utilize his right to learn four years in an academic institution.
When M.B. arrived in Israel, he was immediately hit with a draft notice. The army claimed that they had information that his mother lived two consecutive years in Israel before he turned 18, which would have cancelled any benefits he could receive as a son of migrants.
But M.B. knew that his mother had only made a short 2 week visit during that time. If there was a mistaken record concerning when she left Israel, it was probably due to the fact that his mother has two passports and used different ones when she arrived and left.
When M.B. asked for our help, we advised him to find his mother’s plane ticket and the receipt for it which would prove that his mother had only visited for 2 weeks.
M.B. followed our advice and went to the draft board with the proof. They accepted his claim.
M.B. thanks Israeli Shortcut for helping him receive his son of migrants status which allowed him to finish his academic studies in Israel.
