Rafah crossing open Monday for end of July, early August applicants

Aug. 7, 2011 10:36 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 7, 2011 10:36 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- The Ministry of Interior in Gaza said Sunday that travel via the Rafah crossing on Monday will only be for passengers who registered to travel on July 31 and August 2.

The ministry instructed travelers registered for July 31 to proceed to Abu Yousef An-Najjar hall in the southern city of Khan Younis at 6.00.a.m.

while passengers registered for August 2 should arrive at 8.00.a.m.

Gaza residents must register with the Ministry of Interior if they want to travel via the Rafah crossing and a visit can take months to process due to the high number of applicants.

The southern terminal, which is the only entry and exit point from the Gaza Strip not controlled by Israel, was opened to travelers in May 2011.

Egyptian and Gazan authorities have struggled to cope with huge demand and coordinating procedures, leading to travel delays.
