The Muslim Issue

Countries that do not accept Israeli passports

Sixteen countries forbid admission to Israeli passport holders:

  •  Algeria
  •  Bangladesh
  •  Brunei
  •  Iran
  •  Iraq (except Iraqi Kurdistan)
  •  Kuwait
  •  Lebanon (neighboring country; territory dispute – Shebaa farms)
  •  Libya
  •  Malaysia (Clearance permit needed from the Ministry of Home Affairs.)
  •  Oman
  •  Pakistan (Clearance permit needed from the Ministry of Internal Security.)
  •  Saudi Arabia
  •  Sudan
  •  Syria (neighboring country; territory dispute – Golan Heights)
  •  United Arab Emirates (accepted for transit only; not allowed for admission)
  •  Yemen

In addition, Iran, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen do not allow entry to people with evidence of travel to Israel, or whose passports have either a used or an unused Israeli visa. As a consequence, many countries will allow for a second passport to be issued to citizens wishing to circumvent this restriction.
