Israelis might not need US visas for traveling
This week it’s been reported that, due to the deal between the USA and Israel, Israeli citizens may be allowed to travel to the USA under Visa Waiver Programme, which means they might not need their visas obtained in advance. As a part of this agreement, Israel is supposed to provide the US with the access to the country’s extensive fingerprint database for background checks.
The anticipated agreement still must be passed into Israeli law, as it requires the sharing of such kind of important data as a fingerprint database with a foreign nation. The agreement should be finalized by December 2017, as Ayelet Shaked, the Justice Minister of Israel, is expected to visit the US within next two weeks. Before the agreement is finalized the visa policy between the two countries remains the same.
