What is gov.il - Vision
Gov.il is the new, updated, Israeli government website, set up to provide the public with simple, easy and fast access to government information and services.
What does gov.il do
Gov.il centralizes government information and services from all the government branches, on one innovative and mobile compatible* interface.
On gov.il you can easily find and access personal data and government information and services, from anywhere, at any time, with ease and faster than ever.
Currently you can find services and information from the Prime Minister's Office, the Ministry of Justice, the Population and Immigration Authority, the ministries of Tourism, Culture and Sport, Public Security, Transport and Road Safety, Energy, Construction and Housing and the Law Enforcement and Collection System Authority, along with selected services from all government ministries and authorities
. All of these have been rewritten to meet the new gov.il standards.
The information on gov.il is official and up-to-date, but, as we are still in our pilot phase, the information and services are not complete. We are continuously working on bringing you all the updated information and services from all governement ministries and agencies, as soon as possible
The site serves the entire population of Israel and the general public.
How does gov.il work
The new gov.il site was built and is managed by the E–government unit, a part of the ICT Authority, and a subsidiary of the Prime Minister's Office. In the initial planning phases, we conducted extensive studies of government websites worldwide, utilizing open-source knowledge and code, used by the British government for their web site, GOV.UK.
We apply the latest web technologies, and conduct extensive user testing, focus groups and web-based surveys, in the development of the site and its content. This enables us to determine what information and services, you need most, and helps us remain up-to-date with ever-changing web trends.
* gov.il is supported on the following browsers: Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer 10 and above, Safari, Firefox, and Microsoft Edge. The site runs on multiple operating systems and devices, such as iOS version 7 and above and Android version 4.3 and above.
