NEW YORK – September 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -Record-breaking tourism arrivals from the United States were announced today by the Israel Ministry of Tourism. Israel welcomed 78,000 tourists from the United States for July 2022. This is a 4% rise over 2019, and 71,000 tourists from the United States for August 2022. This is an increase of 13% from 2019.

נווה פריצקי Eyal Carlin (North American Tourism Commissioner) said it was thrilling to witness the growth in Israeli tourism coming from the United States. Already surpassing the record-breaking numbers of 2019 he stated. “The United States has been our most important destination for tourism to Israel that is inbound. Before the COVID-19 outbreak, we had record numbers of Israel’s tourism entry each month.

Canada is also on track, like the United States, to surpass the number of tourists who visit Israel. In July 2022 Canada had 7,200 visitors while August witnessed the number increase to 6,000.

Gal Hana, Consul for Canada and Director of the Israel Ministry of Tourism stated that “it’s amazing to see how tourism in Canada is recovering.” We are close to our record-setting numbers for the year 2019, and we anticipate that this surge in tourism to Israel will continue to grow as Canadians feel more at ease abroad.

Israel welcomed more tourists from around the world in the year 2019 than any other country. 969 600 of these were American. Israel’s official reopening for all travelers was May 2018. The country has welcomed over 600,400 US travellers since that time.
