    NEW YORK, Sept. 8th, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The Israel Ministry of Tourism announced today new record-breaking tourist arrivals from the United States visiting Israel in the months of July and August. The country received 78,000 travelers from the United States during July 2022, an increase of 4% over the year before and 71,000 tourists from the United States during August 2022. That’s a 13% growth over 2019.

Already reaching and surpassing our record-breaking figure in 2019,” he stated. “The United States remains our largest market for Israel-bound tourism. Prior to the outbreak of COVID-19, we were celebrating record-breaking tourism numbers each month. We are delighted to witness this change and anticipate a steady upward trend for months, and possibly years.

    Canada with 7,200 tourists in July 2022, and 6,000 in August is not far from the United States.

    “It is so exciting to see how the Canadian tourism to Israel is rebounding,” said Gal Hana, Consul and Director for Canada for the Israel Ministry of Tourism. “We are near our record 2019 numbers. We expect that this trend will continue as Canadians are more active in traveling abroad.
