Israel Tourism

In 2021, the number of foreign tourists visiting Israel amounted to 396.5 thousand, a significant decrease compared to the previous year. In 2020 and 2021, the volume of international tourism in Israel has declined remarkably. This was due to tighter restrictions imposed on the country’s tourism industry following the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in March 2020. However, the Israeli authorities lifted most of the restrictions in 2022. According to estimates, the number of international tourist arrivals will gradually increase in the coming years to 5.68 million in 2025.

Economic contribution of the tourism industry

In recent years, the economic importance of tourism in Israel has been increasing. Projections showed that the total financial contribution of tourism will likely rise to nearly 30 million U.S. dollars in 2025, a new peak. In 2013, Israel signed an open skies agreement with the EU. This helped promote inbound and outbound tourism since new European airlines started operating in Israeli airports. Despite the noteworthy increment in tourism from Europe, in 2020, the  number of tourists from the United States was the highest of all countries, with 200.5 thousand American visitors in Israel that year.

Diverse tourist sights

Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and Haifa are famous tourist destinations in Israel. However, natural and historical sites in the country also attract high numbers of tourists. In 2021, the Israeli Nature and Parks Authority recorded over 2.54 million  visits to historical sites in Israel. Some well-known historical sites are Masada and Caesarea. In addition, the  number of visits to recreation sites in Israel rose as well and reached more than 6.64 million in the same year.

 

There are approximately 25,000 hotel rooms in the country, with the majority located in major cities such as Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and Haifa. On average, hotel prices in Israel range from $100 to $400 per night, depending on the location and type of hotel.
