Trouble re-entering the UK

I am an Aussie living in London on a working holiday visa. I am planing a trip to Israel, Jordan and Egypt. I have heard that I may have trouble re-entering the UK after having visited Israel. Does anyone have any info of experiences with this?

I knew that Israel is not very popular these days in the UK but I don't think that we are not that popular!!!

I have never heard of someone who had a problem getting back to UK after visiting Israel.

But then, who can know with those English....

Then you will just have to spend the rest of your life in Israel ! Do you like hummus ? :-)

The problem might be in your "working holiday visa" not the trip to Israel. Did you visit anyother place where you had to go thru immigration and get a stamp in your passport? Visiting Israel, Jordan, Egypt etc... is not the problem.

By all means, contact your Australian Embassy in the UK to find out . Acutally, you may also want to contact the UK authorities to find out.

I don't think it has anything to do with a visit in Israel.. However it could be an issue if you leave the UK. you need to check with the UK's interior ministry if your working visa expire if you leave the UK.
