Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked predicts that Israelis could be able to enter the US without a waiver starting in 2023, after discussing the matter with US Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas in Washington.

“The two of us are determined to advance the waiver exemption for Israelis. There are a few obstacles but we know how to overcome them. If we succeed, starting in 2023 we can bid adieu to the lines at the American embassy,” Shaked writes on Twitter.
