Israelis: Getting a US Visa May Get Easier!

Israel US Relations
In another move to strengthen ties between Israel and the US, Californian Democratic Senator Brad Sherman introduced a new bill that, if passes, will add Israel to the US Visa Waiver Program, Ynet news reported.

The Visa Waiver Program allows citizens from specified countries to enter the US for tourism or business for up to 90 days without needing to obtain a visa from a US consulate abroad.

If the bill passes, Israel will  join the likes of Australia, Japan, New Zealand and Singapore as number 37 on the list. 

Right now any Israeli who wants to visit the States has to deal with the lengthy business of visa approval, which is almost as frustrating as dealing with Israeli bureaucracy. 

While bills like this one have been introduced in the past, but were rejected, I'm still crossing my fingers!
