The administration of US President Joe Biden has added Israel to the list of countries whose citizens are allowed to visit the United States without a visa.
Details: It is noted that the decision, announced on September 27, was made despite Washington's concerns about the Israeli government's attitude towards Americans of Palestinian descent, and was an important achievement for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who often clashed with the Biden administration.
Under the visa waiver program, starting November 30, Israelis will be able to travel to the United States for business or leisure for up to 90 days without a visa by simply registering with the electronic travel authorization system. However, even if Israeli citizens are authorized to travel through this system, border control at the airport may still refuse entry into the country.
The United States has a program that currently allows citizens of 40 mostly European and Asian countries to travel to America for three months without visas.
