The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation has announced that UAE citizens will soon be able to travel to the State of Israel without the need for a visa for a maximum of 90 days per visit. The exemption comes as part of the mutual visa waiver memorandum of understanding signed between both countries that will come into effect after its ratification. Omar Saif Ghobash, Assistant Minister for Culture and Public Diplomacy, signed on behalf of the UAE, while Shlomo Mor-Yosef, Director-General of the Population and Immigration Authority of the Ministry of Interior, signed on behalf of Israel. "The entry into force of the memorandum will allow UAE passport holders to enter the State of Israel without a visa," Ghobash said, noting that this reflects both countries’ desire to strengthen promising relations and opportunities for cooperation that await the two countries, open up new horizons for cooperation in the region, and unlock economic potential with the aim of achieving the well-being of the peoples of the region and ensuring a better future for coming generations.'' He underscored that the mutual visa waiver will have a positive impact on tourism, trade, investment, and other sectors, as well as strengthen cooperation between both countries.
