UAE-Israel visa exemption agreement to go into force in 30 days

Israel’s Foreign Ministry says the United Arab Emirates has ratified the visa exemption agreement between the two countries, the first between the Jewish state and an Arab country.

The deal will go into effect in 30 days, according to the Foreign Ministry.

Israel’s cabinet approved its side of the deal, waiving visas for Emirati citizens, in late November.
