Israel permits entry to Palestinian Americans to strengthen ties

Thursday, July 20, 2023


Israel announced that it would be allowing all American citizens, including dual–nationality Palestinians from the West Bank and Gaza Strip, to enter the country through its international airport as part of an agreement to qualify for a visa waiver program with the U.S.

Israel has pushed for years to secure visa–free entry for its citizens to the U.S., a privilege enjoyed by 40 countries, mostly in Europe and Asia.

But that request has been thwarted by the U.S. government’s demand that the country provides equal treatment at its borders to all American citizens, including Palestinian – Americans, who are often barred from entering the country through Israel’s Ben –Gurion airport.

Instead, those traveling to the occupied West Bank or the Gaza Strip must enter via neighboring Jordan or Egypt.
