On September 27, 2023, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced the designation of Israel into the U.S. Visa Waiver Program (VWP). By November 30, 2023, the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) will be updated to allow citizens and nationals of Israel to apply for authorization to travel to the United States for tourism or business purposes for up to 90 days without first obtaining a U.S. visa. Once approved, ESTA authorizations are generally valid for two years. Israelis with valid B-1/B-2 visas may continue to use them for business and tourist travel to the United States.
