Israel appoints new Tourism Minister

Israel has named Yoel Razvozov as new Tourism Minister.

Razvozov takes over with immediate effect and says he will work tirelessly to bring the tourism industry back to full operations.

 "My first task as Minister of Tourism is to build an effective outline for the easing of conditions for tourists to enter Israel - of course, without endangering the citizens of Israel and in cooperation with the professional bodies in the Ministry of Health," he said.

 "I will continue to work vigorously to rehabilitate the tourism industry. The assistance for the hotel and tourism industries will continue until the end of the year."

In 2018, Israel welcomed more than four million inbound tourists.

It has reopened borders to allow a limited number vaccinated tourists travelling as part of an organised tour group.

In Israel's latest tourism marketing campaign, Two Cities, One Break, travellers are encouraged to visit both Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, which serve as diverse destinations that range from beaches to unique architecture and biblical history.
