Israel tourismThis summer, huge number of visitors flocked to Israel, a major leap that helped the country to earn billions of dollars into the Israeli economy in 2017 so far.


In August 2017, over 253,800 tourist entries were recorded which accounted for an up of 20% from 2016, as per the Central Bureau of Statistics. Over 2.3 million tourists entered the country from January to August 2017. This was a 24% rise from the last year and 20.4% more than in 2015.

From the commencement of 2017, tourism has helped the nation to earn and contribute $3.4 billion into the Israeli economy.

However, the Tourism Ministry for the first time conducted a pre-summer marketing campaign in Europe, supporting travel to Israel during summers. So far, this period was quite a low period in terms of tourism, a development which the ministry tried to alter.


The first campaign of the Poland ministry caused 60% increase in tourist entries from the eastern European nation.

Out of all the tourist entries, 231,800 came by air, a growth of 19% in last year August and 9% on August 2015. 21,900 additional visitors turned up via land crossings, 18,800 of which through Jordan and about 3,100 via Egypt. In August, a 125% increase in day visitors was recorded; 21,200 this year in comparison to 9,400 who came in August 2016.
