Closed petition Urge Israel to overturn new entry procedure for foreign visitors to Palestine

Protect the rights, privacy and safety of UK citizens by formally making representation to the Israeli government to abandon the new "Procedure for entry and residence of foreigners in the Judea and Samaria area". We believe the procedures are discriminatory, invasive and punitive.

More details

This procedure create new barriers to certain foreign nationals seeking to enter occupied Palestinian territories, which serves to frustrate British-Palestinian relations.

Restrictions only apply to family members visiting Palestinian relatives in the 'Judea and Samaria' area, and certain other individuals. They do not apply to people visiting Israelis, including those living in illegal settlements inside the occupied Palestinian territory.

We believe restrictions are damaging Palestinian development and economic growth, impacting trade, education, culture and familial relations.
