Entry Clearances

Question for Home Office

UIN HL1397, tabled on 22 July 2014

To ask Her Majesty’s Government why Israelis can enter Britain without visas; and why Palestinians can not.

Answered on

30 July 2014

The UK keeps its visa regimes under regular review. The imposition or lifting of a visa regime is not undertaken lightly and follows a detailed review of the
risks including immigration, security and crime risks. We have no plans at this stage to change the visa regimes for Israeli nationals or those from the
Occupied Palestinian Territories.
