In the same way as any other person admitted or granted entry to the UK, an Israeli citizen is expected to comply with the conditions of their stay in the UK and to abide by UK laws. Furthermore, watch list checks at the UK border identify persons who present a potential threat to the UK. The UK has no ‘visa waiver agreement’ with Israel.
