Jerusalem, Israel - May 29, 2024 - Israel is set to introduce a new electronic travel authorization (ETA) system for visitors from visa-exempt countries in the coming months. This system will mirror the U.S. ESTA program and similar systems in other countries, designed to streamline entry procedures for non-citizens. Visitors from countries that do not require visas to enter Israel will be required to obtain an ETA before boarding a flight to Israel. An ETA will be valid for two years, and allows the holder to enter Israel multiple times. A fee of 25 NIS will be collected. Citizens of Israel, or non-citizens who have a mispar zehut (Israeli identity number), will not be required to obtain an ETA. Similarly, student visa holders will be exempt from this process.  It is imp...
White House National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby told reporters on Tuesday that Sunday’s air strike in Rafah did not cross President Joe Biden's red line. “We don’t want to see a major ground operation, we haven’t seen that at this point,” Kirby said in Tuesday’s press briefing when asked how this attack does not cross the president’s red line, as quoted by CNN.

Baltimore, MD - May 28, 2024  - Maryland car owners will soon notice quite a significant increase in registration fees. Starting July 1 passenger cars weighing up to 3,700 pounds will be forced to pay $221 every two years as opposed to the current $135 rate. Electric vehicle owners, meanwhile, will be stuck with a $100 surcharge on top of registration renewal fees. The price hikes stem from legislation passed earlier this year in the General Assembly. WMAR-2 reported in March about the Department of Transportation experiencing a more than $2 billion deficit over the next six years. Raising registration fees was an option presented by the Maryland Commission on Transportation Revenue and Infrastructure Needs which studied ways to make up for some of the debt. The State claims fee...
