Effective September 29, 2023, Israel has been designated eligible for participation in the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). This means that eligible Israeli citizens, nationals, and passport holders from Israel may apply for admission to the United States at U.S. ports of entry as nonimmigrant visitors for a period of 90 days or less for business or pleasure without first obtaining a B-1/B-2 nonimmigrant visa stamp in their passports.

The Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) is expected to be updated by November 30, 2023, to facilitate this change.
