Question by Yvette B: Can a person with mental illness be denied a passport?
I have a friend with a severe mental illness and she would like to travel to Israel. She’s been court committed once, but hasn’t been a threat to herself (she was starving herself) for almost three years. Do you have to be experiencing symptoms severe enough to be hospitalized or just have ANY mentally illness to be denied a passport? Any help in this regard would be most appreciated!
Answer by Uncle
They can be denied on the grounds of health and sanity
