Business Travelers Should Get Visit Permits for West Bank

21 May 13


The Ministry of the Interior has adopted a new border control policy, wherein business travelers are being asked to declare that they do not intend to visit the West Bank.

Business travelers who do intend to visit the West Bank should apply for a visit permit at least one month in advance. Applications must be lodged with the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories Unit (COGAT), which is tasked with administering government policy in the West Bank.
