On this Page:

We are thrilled to announce that 2010 has set new records for tourism with the arrival of the  3,000,001st tourist to Israel in 2010. The Tourism Minister Stas Misezhnikov, and the Director General of Israel Airports Authority Kobi Mor welcomed Pastor Ribamar Araujo Ladislau as he landed at Ben Gurion International Airport, November 22, 2010 on a flight from Sao Paulo, Brazil, setting a new all-time high for incoming tourism to Israel.


It has been an amazing year for Israel.  We continue to be thankful for all of our dear friends who have helped this year become the best year ever for tourism to Israel. We hope to see this trend continue into 2011.


On behalf of the people of Israel, I want to thank those of you who have made the journey to the Holy Land – and I encourage those of you still considering it to come and enjoy a life-changing experience like so many other Christians. Remember, when you visit Israel – you’ll never be the same!


And whether you are planning your first trip to Israel or your tenth, please know that we are here to serve you in any way that we can. Feel free to contact our office at 1.888.77.ISRAEL – or visit us online at


We hope to see you soon in Israel!
