The Ministry of Interior Beit Shemesh will be undertaking a significant expansion project.
It was agreed in a meeting held recently at City Hall, with the participation of Mayor Moshe Abutbul; His deputy, Samuel Greenberg & other Interior Ministry officials, That the interior ministry will enhance the services currently provided to its residents.
Greenberg explained the that the Ministry of Interior in Beit Shemesh, was for a number of years closed, and residents of the city had to travel to Jerusalem for everything to do with interior ministry matters .
Two years ago, the ministry reopened its beit shemesh branch providing services to its residents, though whilst the Interior Ministry provides service to residents it is necessary to expand the place, and provide better services to those that need passports & visas. Currently the ministry only provides visa services for two hours a week.
During the meeting it was agreed that the municipality will allocate NIS 300,000 to expand its existing branch, so that the Interior can expand its operations. There will be more hours of operation and most importantly visas will be able to be obtained any day of the week.
On Sunday, meetings were held with employees of the Interior Ministry to learn & discuss the best ways of how to expand the Bureau in the most optimal way.
Greenberg: “we expect to open the improved branch in Nissan & hope to provide the best services possible to the residents of our city.
