Bennett lauds Biden, Shaked for visa waiver deal

Former prime minister Naftali Bennett, who was premier during much of the process for Israel’s entry into the Visa Waiver Program, says US President Joe Biden vowed to see the process through when they met in 2021.

“President Biden… committed to acting to overcome all the bureaucratic obstacles and to grant Israeli citizens the visa waiver,” he says.

“Now, President Biden has made good on his promise and I thank him for it,” Bennett tweets.

“Soon you, Israeli citizens, won’t need to wait in line at the embassy in Tel Aviv anymore,” he adds.

He says his interior minister Ayelet Shaked was a “bulldozer who ran through every obstacle,” and also thanks former US envoy Tom Nides, among others.
