Certificate

Mr Isidor Wilkenfeld, Aken a. Elbe, made a request through us for admission in the transit camp Richborough in England. This application would receive a positive decision (i.e. He was successful in his application) due to his continued/further migration to Palestine.

One could expect the prompt granting of entry permits to those emigrants, as the British Government could prove final entry into another country within 9 months. Due to this short time frame no further authorization was required, provided that they met other requirements.

This is the case with Mr Isidor Wilkenfeld.
