Israeli-born US citizen visiting Dubai

Hello,

I am a U.S. citizen and I'm planning on visiting the UAE in March for a day, entering Dubai and leaving from Abu Dhabi on Etihad (used 90k AA miles to fly the Etihad First Class Apartment!). The only issue: I was born in Israel and my U.S. Passport shows it. I also have an Israeli passport but I have no intentions in bringing it with me though.

Should I be concerned about any problems at the DXB immigration?

Thank you!

No. Just show your US passport. You will get an automatic free visa stamp, which will be cancelled when you leave the UAE from Abu Dhabi.

Don't even mention or show the Israeli passport.

Hi Uri, I have the same problem... Israeli born US citizen.

Did you manage to go through immigration smoothly in Dubai??

Thanks!

Did you read the question I asked? it was meant for the publisher of the post to see if he eventually had any problems as the post is from December 2016.

אתה יכול לומר לי אם היה בעיה בכניסה לדובאי עם דרכון אמריקאי ?
