We are so happy to see an improvement in the trend and expect this trend to last for many months and years.” Canada is also on track, just like the United States, to surpass its tourist arrivals into Israel.

Israel has welcomed more than 4.6 million international visitors in 2019, with 969.600 of them coming from the United States. In May 2018, Israel opened its doors to all tourists, no matter whether they have been vaccinated. The country already has hosted more than 600,000 visitors.
