No tourists visas for Israelis to Indonesia E-mail

Reports published in Israel’s Haaretz newspaper in May suggesting that Indonesia, the world’s largest Muslim country, will soon be issuing tourist visas to Israelis have been denied by the Indonesian government.

According to the Jakarta Post, “The Indonesian government does not have a tourist visa policy for Israeli citizens,” the government said in a press release, while stressing that Indonesia and Israel had no diplomatic relations.

Indonesia’s Immigration Directorate General Agung Sampurno denied a report by an Israeli media portal claiming that it was issuing tourist visas to Israelis. He said the granting of visas to foreign citizens from a country that did not have diplomatic relations with Indonesia was only made possible through the Calling Visa mechanism, which is overseen by the Foreign Ministry and its related agencies, including the Immigration Directorate General.

“The report stating Indonesia was issuing tourist visas to Israelis is a hoax,” Agung said.
