Surprising Breakthrough in Israeli Bureaucracy
Soon it will be possible to pay all government invoices at post offices with a credit card.
Back to list
The Israel Postal Company and the Accountant General at the Ministry of Finance have signed an agreement whereby for the first time payments up to 4,000 NIS for all government offices may be made at Israeli post offices by means of a credit card.
The new procedure will be implemented gradually. After the holidays, it will be possible to pay bills only to some government ministries, but by the end of the year the service will be extended to other ministries.
Until now, residents of Israel have had to pay their bills by cash or check in the various postal offices. From now on they can also pay by credit card. Without a doubt this is a substantial improvement for Israeli residents which will allow them to make their payments in an easy and accessible manner.
Israeli Shortcut views this as a significant breakthrough in improving Israeli bureaucracy and removing impediments for Israeli residents, and hopes it is a harbinger of many others to come.
