Chapter Summary

This chapter addresses the admission of foreigners in so far as it relates to Palestinian nationality, by looking at the various rules applicable to Palestinian citizens and those applicable to foreigners with regard to their entry into Palestine. This distinction is important because international migration law sets different rules for citizens and foreigners. A number of legislation governed the admission of foreigners into Palestine. Passport rules regulated departure from the country, while entry into Palestine was governed by immigration legislation. The procedural aspects for entry into Palestine were organized in detail by the immigration regulations, notably the Regulations of 1933, and other administrative rules and instructions. Foreigners fell under two classes: travellers and immigrants. Persons who wished to travel to Palestine were obliged to obtain entry visas, as a general rule, in order to land therein. Trans-Jordanian citizens continued to retain the right to enter Palestine without visas.
