UAE activates tourist entry visas for Israeli passport holders

The UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation has announced the activation of tourist entry visas through airlines and travel and tourism offices for Israeli passport holders until procedures for the constitutional ratification of the mutual visa waiver agreement between the two states are completed.

The move falls within bilateral cooperation between the UAE and the State of Israel following the signing of the Abraham Accords and aims to facilitate travel to the UAE for the time being.

The Abraham Accords include travel procedures for Emirati and Israeli citizens that are expected to enter into force shortly.

The UAE Cabinet, on the Nov.1, 2020, ratified the agreement between the UAE and the State of Israel regarding the mutual exemption from entry visa requirements.
