UAE has suspended its visa-free agreement with Israel. The agreement will be suspended till July 1. The decision was taken considering the Covid-19 situation. The UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation has announced this.
The UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation has also updated the travel requirements for UAE residents to Israel on their website and removed the country from the ‘visa not required’ category.
