I guess I would say that you need to be careful and make sure you don't have an Israeli passport or passport stamp from Israel - I reckon that'd make your time getting in a bit harder than the Joe behind you.

As far as I'm aware, you will be denied entry into the UAE if you have an Israeli passport or an Israeli stamp on your passport. Which is why, many of my colleagues need to issue separate passports for travels to IL only.

As for the religion Wandabug, I'm not really sure I understand your question clearly. But I'm sure there are Jewish people out here who do not publicise their religion. The UAE, like other Arab nations does not recognise the State of Israel. That being said, they are very tolerant of other religions as long as you go by the rules. So I would think being Jewish is ok, but being Israeli is not.

In the sticky top of page Elphy quotes;

''Judaism is not recognised, nor formally, is the state of Israel''

This is why I am confused, I understand that Israel is not recognised but why not Judaism? After all Islam recognises both Christianity and Judaism so why not the UAE ? Or is the sticky wrong? Elphy???

I do not think that Judaism is not recognised as it is an established and ancient religion to which Christianity and especially Islam have deep roots in - however the state of Israel, as stated above, is not formally recognised for many reasons pertaining to this area.

I don't think that anyone would deny the existence of Judaism (even the Islamic governments) however, it probably is advisable to keep it under wraps given the current political climate and tension with the state of Israel.. just my food for thought!

Muslims recognise the three Abrahamic religions AFAIK - Christianity, Islam, and Judaism.

UAE doesn't recognise the state of Israel because of politics, not religion (although admittedly Israeli politics has its roots in Jewish religion).

Being Jewish (but not Israeli) in Dubai is probably not something you want to draw attention to but it won't necessarily be a problem. Isn't the head of NYU AD Jewish?

Israeli passport holders can't enter UAE (except for some special circumstances), Israeli stamps in other passports should be ok.
