Russian Visa Holders for Palestine to Be Admitted

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The question of admittance of Russian immigrants to Palestine has been settled as a result of negotiations conducted between the Palestine Zionist Executive and the Government.

Russian residents to whom Palestine visas had been granted may proceed to Constantinople or other places where confirmation of their visas will be sent by the Palestine Government. They will therefore have to apply for transit visas to the consuls of the respective countries.

This arrangement was necessitated by the fact that since the Anglo-Russian breach of relations there was nobody in Soviet Russia to grant visas to those proceeding to Palestine. The Norwegian representative in Moscow who took charge of British interests in Russia refused to deal with this matter.
