Israel’s Supreme Court lifts restrictions on Ukrainians entering the country

Israel’s Supreme Court on Sunday lifted restrictions on the entry of Ukrainians into the country, after the interior minister in March limited the number of refugees from Ukraine allowed to enter on a visa.

Under current regulations, Ukrainians do not need a visa to visit Israel for a maximum period of three months. In March, Ayelet Shaked said only about 20,000 Ukrainians who had tourist visas or were in the country illegally before the Russian invasion would be allowed to stay.

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky has already praised the Israeli court’s decision.

“The rule of law and respect for human rights is exactly what distinguishes a true and developed democracy,” he wrote on the social network Twitter.
