The U.S. Congress will be voting on Tuesday whether to add Israel to the list of 37 countries whose citizens do not require a Visa to visit, as part of the Visa Waiver Program (VWP).
If this attempt passes, Israelis will be permitted to visit for up to 90 days without a Visa.
There have been previous attempts to add Israel onto the list, but they never succeeded in passing in the Senate.Jewish Press News Briefs
