Tourism in Israel is slowly getting back on its feet

 Thursday, August 11, 2022 


As summer slowly coming to a close, a report from the Tourism Ministry highlights that the hot weather of Israel in 2022 hasn’t been a constraint in terms of incoming tourism. The tourism industry, in fact, is gradually moving towards record high statistics, at present falling only 22% low of the record numbers of 2019.

In July 2022, around 249,500 tourist entries were recorded, according to the report, which is immensely inspiring compared to the July of 2021 with49, 200, which is itself impressive when calculated next to the same month’s tourists in 2020 – a worthless 6,000.

The major drop from July of 2019 recent record of 322,800 was an obvious fatality of the pandemic, which had a damaging effect on tourism all over the world – an occurrence from which Israel was not exempted either.

Mark Feldman, CEO of Ziontours Jerusalem said that the industry was at its short supply just a few months after COVID was declared, closing the country, closing everything all over the world. He is actually overwhelmed that 1,000 tourists came in. He said that everyone in the tourism industry was unsure and petrified. They let go of 95% of their staff members, similar to many other places. A few hotels had kept very few staffs onboard just because it would have cost them additionally to fire them. But, as travel restrictions have got raised slowly, so too the spirits of Israeli-bound tourists have revived.
