Nationals or citizens of Israel, who hold a full Israeli passport, do not require a visa to come to the UK as a visitor or for short-term study for less than six months. Holders of Palestinian travel documents require a visa to come to the UK for any purpose in the Immigration Rules.

The government regularly reviews the visa system. Visa regimes are imposed and removed on the basis of the risk that the country’s citizens pose to the UK.
