Diplomatic passport holders of Nepal and Israel will not require a VISA to travel to one another country for up to 90 days. An agreement to this end was signed between the two countries on Friday.


At a function held at the Foreign Ministry of Israel in Jerusalem, Nepali Ambassador to Israel Dr Anjan Shakya and the Foreign Minister of Israel signed the agreement on behalf of their respective countries, according to the Nepali Embassy in Jerusalem. On the occasion, Ambassador Shakya proposed increasing the training period of Nepali students coming to Israel on the ‘learn and earn’ project to develop them as expert consultants.


The best among the students should be selected to continue beyond the currently 11 month-long training period, she said. Matters relating to resuming recruitment of Nepalis as caregivers and in other areas of employment were also discussed during the meeting, the Embassy has said in a statement.
