Israeli push for visa-free travel to US faces test

Published: 04.25.14, 23:00 / Israel News

A campaign to allow Israelis to enter the United States without a visa is gaining steam in Congress, but is still running into problems with the Obama administration over a demand that the Jewish state provide the same treatment at its borders to all Americans.


 A congressional effort last year was blocked. It could have allowed Israel to maintain discriminatory entry policies for some Americans. However, new legislation could offer Israel greater flexibility in the Visa Waiver Program, and the administration has pledged to work with Israel to help it move closer to qualifying for the program.
