This is the part that caught my attention:
Levine, who is Jewish, had questions about flying to an Arab country. "For sure I had it in mind, but I talked about that with my parents and people that had been to Dubai, and it's a very safe country. And I know other Jewish people that have been there."

I was about to bump up the thread "Dubai is rich in politics", but it's been locked.

Interesting that Levine had no difficulty getting a visa. Good for him, what an experience.

Levine is a US citizen. It's the Israeli nationals who apparently cannot play in Dubai (and Doha either, I think). It's not the religion, it's the country (and the passport).

That is not correct.
If a US citizen has an Israeli visa in their passport or otherwise indications of close ties, they are high probability of rejection.

They can play in the Dubai ATP event though.
Yes, that is what they say, but I don't think anyone has tried yet. Have any of the women tried to play the WTA event?

I'm confused. Are you saying if a US citizen has gone to Israel for a visit, then they may not be allowed into Dubai? Seriously?

Dubai Visa Requirements

If your passport has an Israeli stamp you will not get a visa. For your visa you would need your passport, a copy of your Dubai visa application form that must be duly filled in with all relevant details and relevant signatures, 2 photographs, a letter from your sponsor and the original and a duplicate of the letter from your company.​
