In Israel, as in many other countries, disabled individuals with mobility challenges are entitled to receive a special parking permit for use in a vehicle granting access to marked disabled parking spots and in places where parking is not normally permitted.
  • Regular permit: Green triangle for limited mobility.
  • Wheelchair permit: Wheelchair symbol for those who require a wheelchair.
  • IDF veterans: Flower symbol for disabled veterans.

You may be eligible if you have an illness or condition causing mobility issues, difficulty walking, or confinement to your home as indicated in your medical reports.

Confirmation of disability: Obtain written confirmation from a government doctor stating your disability and the need for a vehicle.
