Visiting the Gaza Strip  (4 Answers)

I am a danish student, and In september i will travel to the west bank to work in a refugee camp in the city of Ramallah. In the weekends i will be off duty, and are planning to visit several palestinian cities and maybe som israeli aswell. The most important place for me to visit would be Gaza, so does anyone have the slightest idea of who to contact, to be able to enter? Im well aware that the situation in Gaza is very tence at the moment, but since both sides has agreed to a peace agreement, i figured it might be possible.

USA senior citizen would like to enter  (13 Answers)

From reading I see that I might be able to come in from Egypt when the border is open. I wish to visit to research history from a local view in order to write a book about Gaza history, Is it possible to rent a modest room in a family home? How long could I stay with a typical visa? I am studying Arabic but want to know if I can get by with English as well. Also, is it safe for a single old person, i.e., not likely I'd be kidnapped or killed? Sorry if that is insulting but better to ask than to wonder.

Going to Gaza  (2 Answers)

Hi... I have someone in Gaza, well, who will have to return to Gaza within the time period of 3-4 years after college, and I am wondering how I would be able to make it into Gaza. Even if not known what the future will have as in laws, what is the chance do you think? And what would I be needing to look forward to, during the process of actually making it into Gaza? I want to go to Gaza, nowhere else. I am Canadian, going there for personal reasons (the man I am with).

American-Born Citizen trying to get into Gaza to see family friends  (4 Answers)


Can anyone give me some information on how to enter Gaza? I know I have to enter from Israel via Erez. But do I need a special permit? Also, is it better to try to enter alone as a 22 year old female (American Born), or with my mother who was born in Palestine, but is an American citizen (we both have American Passports)? What's the best way to get in? Tell the border control officers that I am visiting family/friends, which is what I want to do...or should I say that I want to meet with a doctor to volunteer because I am premed (I do have connections with a Gazan doctor). Any information or direction would help, thanks =)

visit to Gaza Strip!  (2 Answers)

Hi, I need to go to Gaza next week. Can someone tell me what is the best way to get there? Some people say to fly to Tel Aviv and take a taxi to Gaza but I was told that foreigners are not allowed to cross (Eraz?) into Gaza! Others tell me it is safer to fly to Egypt and cross the border into Gaza! I know that the situation is very unstable in Gaza right now but my company insisted that I go!! Please let me know what you think or give me any other suggestions you may have. Thank you very much. Max
