List of diplomatic missions of Israel

Diplomatic missions of Israel

This is a list of diplomatic missions of Israel, excluding honorary consulates. As of October 2018, there are 76 resident embassies and 21 consulate-generals and 2 representative missions in the 162 states that recognise Israel.[1]

Israel also maintains five missions to multilateral organisations, of which four missions are to the United Nations and one mission to the European Union. Israel also maintains an economic and cultural office in Taiwan and a representative office to the International Renewable Energy Agency in the United Arab Emirates.[2]

Israel's biggest diplomatic coup in the international community came with peace treaties and recognition from Arab countries such as Egypt in the late 1970s, and Jordan in the early 1990s, leading to embassies being opened in Cairo and Amman. During the late 1980s, several Israeli embassies were opened/reopened in former Eastern Bloc states as the Cold War ended. At the beginning of the 1990s, Israel established official relations with the Soviet Union, India and China. The prospects of a Middle East peace agreement in the mid-1990s led to Israeli government offices appearing as trade representative offices being opened in a handful of Arab states such as Bahrain, Qatar, Tunisia, Oman and Morocco. By 2000s, all have since closed the Israeli offices.[3][4][5][6] Israel closed its embassies in Mauritania and Venezuela after the Gaza War, following demands by their national governments.

Since 2014, Germany has provided Israeli citizens with consular assistance in all states where Israel has no official diplomatic representation.[7]
