Egyptian state news agency Mena says Egypt is to open the Rafah border crossing into Gaza permanently to most Palestinians from May 27.
The agency said the only crossing into Gaza that bypasses Israel will be opened from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day except Fridays and holidays.
Mena reported that all Palestinian women as well as men under 18 or over 40 will be exempted from visas.
It said the move by Egypt's transitional military government was part of efforts "to end the status of the Palestinian division and achieve national reconciliation."
