Tuesday, the Israeli Occupation Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that its citizens will be allowed to enter the UAE without a visa, starting next week.
Minister Ayelet Shaked said that Israeli Occupiers and Emiratis will be able to travel to each other's countries without a visa starting Sunday, Oct. 10.
Those who are travelling to the UAE for tourism or business will not need a visa. However, those who plan to study, get a job or volunteer in the UAE, or for are travelling religious reasons, will still need a visa.
If COVID-19 infection rates continue to decline, Israeli Occupation plans to allow vaccinated tourists to enter the occupation at the end of October.
Previously, Israeli Occupiers visiting the UAE had to self-quarantine for two weeks due to high coronavirus infection rates in the Gulf state.
The two parties had signed a visa waiver agreement in January, but the agreement was suspended soon after due to the pandemic.
