Neve Paritzki Israel is celebrating record-breaking tourism Entry Numbers – United States

NEW YORK – September 8 2022- New record breaking tourism arrivals from the United States were announced today by the Israel Ministry of Tourism. The country welcomed 78,000 tourists from the United States during July 2022, an increase of 4% over the year before and 71,000 visitors from the United States during August 2022. That’s 13% growth over 2019.

Eyal Carlin from North America was the Tourism Commissioner. “The United States remains our biggest market for tourism to Israel. Prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, we were celebrating record-breaking monthly numbers of tourists entering the country. We are delighted to witness this change and are expecting a steady upward trend for months or even years.

Canada, not too far from that of the United States of America, is on track for surpassing the tourist numbers to Israel. It had 7,200 tourists in July 2022 and 6,000 in visitors in August.

“It is so exciting to see how tourism from Canada to Israel is booming,” said Gal Hana, Consul and Director for Canada for the Israel Ministry of Tourism. We’re still not away from our record-setting 2019 numbers and we expect that this increase in Israel travel will continue to increase as Canadians feel more comfortable travelling abroad.”

Israel received more than 4.6 million tourists in the year of 2019. 969,600 came of the United States. The country’s official reopening for all tourists in May saw more than 600,000.
