Following the peace agreement between the UAE and Israel, UAE citizens will now be able to travel to Israel for 90 days without a visa.
According to the UAE’s state-run news agency WAM, a statement from the Foreign Ministry said the decision to waive visas reflected the desire of citizens of both countries to strengthen bilateral co-operation, which would lead to new co-operation in the region.
Earlier last week, the first passenger plane from the UAE landed at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport. An agreement was reached between the UAE and Israel on Tuesday to operate 28 flights a week.
The two countries also signed a preliminary agreement to avoid double taxation. The aim is to encourage and promote investment between the two countries.
The UAE announced a landmark peace agreement with Israel on August 13 to establish normal diplomatic relations and then issued a decree on August 29 in light of it, under which the UAE would boycott Israel’s economy. EK’s law has been repealed.
