Jerusalem, August 21st, 1955.
I have been empowered by my Government to agree to the abolishing of visa fees as suggested in your letter of February 9th, 1955, on condition of reciprocity.
It is suggested that this measure go into effect 30 days from the date of the present letter.
If the Government of Israel agrees, Netherlands visas will be issued gratis to Israeli nationals as from September 21st, on condition that the Government of Israel is prepared with effect from the same date to issue visas gratis to nationals of the Netherlands.
I have the honour to be, Sir,
(sd.) G. W. BOISSEVAIN
Dr Walter Eytan,
Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
