NEW YORK – September 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — New record breaking tourist arrivals to the United States were announced today by the Israel Ministry of Tourism. The country received 78,000 travelers from the United States during July 2022, an increase of 4% over 2019 and 71,000 visitors from the United States during August 2022. That’s a 13% increase over the year before.
Eyal Carlin from North America was the Tourism Commissioner. “The United States is the top market for Israel inbound tourism. In fact, before the COVID-19 Pandemic, we were celebrating record-breaking figures of tourist entry each month. It’s a great positive trend that we’re pleased to witness and anticipate an increase in the many months to be.”
Canada is also on track, as the United States, to surpass its tourist arrivals into Israel. In July 2022, Canada had 7,200 visitors while August saw 6,600.
“It is thrilling to see how tourism from Canada to Israel is rebounding,” said Gal Hana Consul and Director of Canada for the Israel Ministry of Tourism. We are close to our record-setting numbers for the year 2019, and we anticipate that this increase in travel to Israel will continue to grow as Canadians are more comfortable at ease abroad.
In 2019, Israel welcomed more than 4.6 million tourists from around the world including 969,600 from the United States, and since the country’s official opening to any traveler regardless of vaccination status in May of this year Israel has received more than 600,400 US travelers.
