Difficulties for Tourists Entering Palestine

Download PDF for this date

Six Jewish tourists were to-day refused admission to Palestine, although they were in possession of means, and of all necessary documents. The Immigration Officer based the refusal on a suspicion that they intend to remain permanently in Palestine. As a result of intervention by the Jewish Agency, two of the tourists have been admitted, and the Jewish Agency is proceeding to press the question of admission for the other four.
