Over 50,000 Israelis visited UAE since commercial flight agreement: report
Tens of thousands of Israeli tourists flocked to the UAE in just two weeks, a report said, driving a tourism boom in the Gulf country.
Israelis have caused a remarkable tourism boom in the UAE, with over 50,000 visiting from Tel Aviv since the two countries signed a normalisation agreement, a report has said.
Tens of thousands of tourists flew to the Emirates from the Jewish state, while Israeli authorities expected over 70,000 to arrive during the eight days of Hanukkah, The Washington Post reported.
The UAE launched tourist visas for Israeli citizens earlier in December after the two countries normalised relations in September and began talks on mutual tourism opportunities.
