This week, about 60,000 tourists are expected to arrive in Israel ahead of Passover and Easter.
It’s traditionally a busy time of year for tourism, starting with Holy Week (this year, beginning April 2) and continuing to Easter on April 9. Passover begins the night of April 5 and ends the night of April 12.
Tourism Minister Haim Katz said he is pleased to see a positive trend in incoming tourism, which is climbing back to normal levels after the pandemic.
Since the beginning of the year, there has been a significant rise in incoming tourism, with 916,000 tourists arriving. In March alone, 352,000 tourist entries were recorded.
