British Mandate Palestine Visas #unitedkingdom


Ann Rabinowitz
 

My great aunt Chaya Pesia Choritz (maiden name Bdil or Bedil) arrived alone
in British Mandate Palestine as a tourist >from Cape Town, South Africa, on
the ship "Felicia" on August 6, 1939. Later, she passed away in a Jerusalem
hospital circa 1941-1943.

It is assumed that she had a South African passport and I would like to
know where her visa and other immigration paperwork would have been obtained
and later stored, so that I could get a copy.

Any assistance on this matter would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you,

!n 1941 South Africa was part of the British Empire, and a South African
citizen would have had British citizenship, so not needed immigration
papers or a visa for Palestine under the British Mandate.
