United Kingdom Tourist Visa For Palestine (3 Month Visa Free Period)

This page provides visa information for UK Citizens wanting to travel to Palestine.

Important Information

Although as a UK citizen you can enter Palestine visa-free for up to 3 months, if you are crossing the border from another country you may need to seek permission from the authorities of the country you are transiting from e.g. Egypt, Israel, Jordan etc.

As this is a changeable and politically sensitive situation, we suggest you contact the Palestinian Mission before you confirm any travel plans, especially if you intend on visiting the West Bank or Gaza Strip.

UK citizens do not require a visa for entry into Israel for up to 3 months. You will be given an entry card on arrival, and you will need to keep this until you leave, even if your passport is stamped.

Your passport must be valid for at least 6 months from your date of entry.

There are strict rules about the border control between Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories. For more information, please read the advice on the GOV.UK website.

If you have any other queries about travel between Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories, please contact the Embassy of Israel at the below contact details.
