Following failed attempts by the Israeli government to cancel the visa
requirement for Israelis to enter the United States, Knesset
Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Affairs Committee head Danny Danon
(Likud) asked Republican House Majority leader Eric Cantor to try to get
the requirement waived in Congress.
Currently Israelis must go through a long diplomatic process and pay a
large fee in order to obtain a visa. There are 35 countries whose
citizens don't require a visa to enter the US. Danon said there was no
reason why South Korea and Andorra were on the list and Israel was not.
