List of diplomatic missions in Israel

Map of nations with diplomatic missions in Israel

Diplomatic missions in Israel are foreign embassies and consulates in Israel. There are currently 88 embassies in Israel, of which 86 embassies are located in Tel Aviv and the Gush Dan Metropolitan Area and 2 embassies are located in Jerusalem. In addition to an embassy, some countries also maintain a consulate in other cities, including Eilat, Haifa or Jerusalem. In diplomatic practice, consulates are not considered to be diplomatic missions, requiring, for example, accreditation to the president.

On 6 December 2017 the President of the United States, Donald Trump announced that the US embassy to Israel would be moved to Jerusalem.[1] The move was made on 14 May 2018.[2] On 11 April 2018, Guatemala announced that their embassy would move to Jerusalem on 16 May 2018.[3] Brazil has reflected on moving the Embassy to Jerusalem, as well, along with Honduras[4], Hungary and Romania.[5] Paraguay's embassy was briefly located in Jerusalem, but was returned to Tel Aviv after a few short months.[6]

As of January 2019, two countries operate embassies to Israel in Jerusalem though with a handful vowing to make the move, 12 countries operate Honorary Consulates accredited to Israel in Jerusalem, and 9 countries operate consulates in Jerusalem accredited for the West Bank and Gaza Strip which are not regarded as diplomatic missions to Israel but are located within Jerusalem municipal boundary. A few other countries have opened official Trade and Defense offices and branches of their embassies, as well, such as Hungary and Australia. Others have vowed to make the move.

Other Missions in JerusalemEdit

These are the list of countries that operate consulates within the Jerusalem municipal boundary but are accredited for the city of Jerusalem, West Bank and Gaza Strip only. These missions are not directly accredited to the Palestinian Authority and also not to Israel. Between 1844 and 2019, the United States maintained a consulate-general in Jerusalem that conducted relations with the Palestinians. In March 2019, the Consulate General was merged into the new US Embassy in Jerusalem and many of its responsibilities were assumed by the Embassy's new Palestinian Affairs Unit.[8] Countries listed below already maintain separate embassies to Israel. For diplomatic missions accredited to the Palestinian Authority directly located inside the Palestinian territories of West Bank and Gaza Strip, see: List of diplomatic missions in Palestine.
