VISA FREE TRAVEL TO USA WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR ISRAELI CITIZENS AS OF NOVEMBER 30, 2023
The U.S. government just announced their agreement to include Israel in its Visa Waiver Program (VWP) which will allow Israeli citizens to travel to the U.S. without a need to apply and obtain a pre-entry visa at the U.S. consulate. By November 30, 2023, the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) will be updated to allow citizens and nationals of Israel to apply to travel to the United States for tourism or business purposes for up to 90 days without first obtaining a U.S. visa, a step which further strengthens the security, economic and people-to-people ties between the United States and Israel. Israel is the 41st member of the VWP. Click here to view the Joint Statement from the U.S. Department of State.
