Emiratis can travel to Israel without a visa

The Israeli cabinet has ratified the agreement for Emiratis to visit without pre-approved visas


The Prime Minister of the Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, took to Twitter on Sunday to confirm the recent visa waiver exemption agreed on with the UAE.

As per an Israeli cabinet decision, UAE nationals can travel to Israel without having to pre-apply for visas.

“We have approved a visa waiver agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates,” tweeted Netanyahu.

“This is what peace for peace looks like. This is important for tourism and the economy that is developing between us.”

The visa exemption agreement with the UAE is Israel’s first-ever such agreement with an Arab country.

During a visit to Israel by a UAE delegation led by Minister of State for Financial Affairs, Obaid Humaid Al Tayer, last month, the UAE and Israel have signed agreements proposing reciprocal visa-free travel.

Etihad has confirmed that it will introduce daily scheduled year-round flights connecting Abu Dhabi-Tel Aviv starting March 28, 2021.
