Yes. There is nothing new that the Rabbinate is Orthodox and they only concern people who are Jewish if there mother is. So it is better to be honest and not play games. Therefore everyone that considering conversion and want's to marry with a Rabbi in Israel has to convert by an Orthodox Rabbi. Even if you do it by Chabbad ultraorthodox they won't except it. So be HONEST in this matter. And try to see every case special.
