#international_vision, The US Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Muerx, said that his country is considering adding Israel and three other countries, namely Cyprus, Romania and Bulgaria, to the visa waiver program to enter the US territory.

Exemption of Israel, Cyprus, Romania and Bulgaria from entry visas to the United States of America, and residence for a period of 90 days.

After the US minister's statements, the Israeli ambassador to the United Nations, Gilad Erdan, said: "We are continuing to work to include Israel in the program so that Israeli citizens can enter the United States without the need for a visa. The statements of the Minister of Homeland Security indicate that we are approaching this goal."

In August 2021, during the first visit of the Israeli Prime Minister, Naftali Bennett to Washington, the Israeli minister discussed the issue with the US Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, and after their meeting, the US State Department announced that the two sides agreed that “it is important to work on Israel’s entry into the exemption program from The visa, both for Israeli citizens and for American citizens."
