Visa-free travel agreement between Israel, UAE

Visa-free travel agreement between Israel, United Arab Emirates (UAE)

A visa-free travel agreement between Israel and the UAE would mean that citizens of both countries would be allowed to enter each other’s countries without going through the hassle of applying for a visa first

Tel Aviv: Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are set to sign a visa-free travel agreement on Tuesday, which will be Israel’s first of its kind agreement with an Arab country.

The Times of Israel has reported that the agreement will be signed at a high level meeting here. The event will be attended by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and two senior UAE ministers, as well as US Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin. The Emirati delegation will be the first high-level Gulf delegation to visit Israel.

A visa-free travel agreement between Israel and the UAE would mean that citizens of both countries would be allowed to enter each other’s countries without going through the hassle of applying for a visa first.

However, this agreement will come into force only after ratification by both countries. This would require the approval of the vote in the Israeli parliament.

Israel currently has peace agreements with four Arab countries, Egypt, Jordan, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates, but so far only the latter has been allowed to enter without a visa. Israel has not even signed a visa-free travel agreement with Israel’s closest ally, the United States as of now.
