Israel and Dubai

I wonder where i can get the correct information. This is always the problem. Different people give you different information and then one doesnt know if you are Arthur or Martha.

I was told TWO different things by TWO different travel agencies.

One told me that you CANNOT go to Dubai if you have ISRAEL stamped in your passport. Another told me you CAN go to Dubai if you have Israel stamped in your passport. I know that it was a problem many years ago but thought that it had been cleared up. Does anyone know the correct answer. Many thanks.

I am also travelling to Dubai on Sunday and have Israeli stamp in British passport, I keep hearing different things, I am wondering if I should use my Aussie passport to avoid hassle but I never use Aussie passport and that's why I feel odd doing that if I don't have to :(

There's nothing to worry about... It really isn't even an issue these days / many who i know never faced any problems at the passport control.

Just seen your message. No problem with Israeli stamp in passport - as opposed to Israeli passport. Been and stayed there with no difficulty, whatsoever - even flown to Tel Aviv (via Amman) without incident. BY way of footnote, my cousin is head of The Initiation Society (Mohel) in London. Invited him to my grandson's Pidyan HaBen only to discover that he was in Dubai that day, performing a bri milah! Annecdotally, I have it, on reliable authority, that ttere is a regular Friday night MInyan, although I have neverbeen. FInally, if you require Kosher on Emirates, simply ask, in advance. Unlike most other airlines, they have nver failed to provide it. Hope this helps.

Yes I ordered Kosher on Emirates and got it. They just dont advertise it thats all. I got in with Israel all over my passport but Israeli's cannot.

i just called Dubai Immigration and they told me categorically there was no problem. Logical when you consider the number of pilgrims who go to Jerusalem every year.
