Eyal Carlin from North America was the Tourism Commissioner. "The United States is our number one market for Israel's inbound tourism.

We are extremely happy to see an improvement in the trend and expect this trend to last throughout the months and years to come."

In line with the United States, Canada is in the process of surpassing the number of tourists visiting Israel, reaching 7,200 visitors in July 2022 and 6000 in August.

We are still not far away from our record 2019 numbers and we expect that this surge in Israel travel will continue to increase as Canadians feel more comfortable travelling internationally."
