NEW YORK – September 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -new record-breaking tourist arrivals to the United States were announced today by the Israel Ministry of Tourism. Israel welcomed 78,000 American tourists during July 2022. This was a 4 percent increase over the year before seven thousand tourists from America visited Israel in August 2022.

“It is so thrilling to once again see an increase in tourist numbers to Israel from the United States, already reaching and exceeding our record-breaking numbers of 2019.” stated Eyal Carlin, Tourism Commissioner for North America. “The United States remains our most important market for Israel-bound tourism. Prior to the COVID-19 epidemic there was a record-breaking number of tourism numbers each month. We are thrilled to see this shift and are expecting an upward trend that will continue for months, and possibly years. Canada is poised to surpass Israel’s arrivals in tourist numbers, with 7,200 tourists visiting Israel in July 2022, and 6,600 in August.

Gal Hana, Consul for Canada and Director of the Israel Ministry of Tourism declared that “it’s so exciting to witness how tourism in Canada is recovering.” We’re not too away from our record-setting numbers for 2019, and we anticipate that this growth in Israel travel will continue to increase as Canadians are more comfortable traveling abroad.”
