According to the ambassador, 22,000 Israelis have already arrived in Azerbaijan so far this year: “In 2019, before the COVID, about 15,000 Israelis came to us. Last year, 24,000 Israelis arrived. This year, until August alone, 22,000 have already arrived. It is an optimistic opening that this year we will break the last record. We have already started working on campaigns to promote tourism in 2024. We have sent delegations of journalists and bloggers and YouTubers, and we will continue to send to spread and publicize the advantages of Azerbaijan. In order to further develop tourism to this area, we will soon send a delegation of Israeli Orthodox journalists who will see the area for themselves and publicize the synagogues and Jewish tourist sites there."
"I invite Israelis to visit Azerbaijan. There is a lot to see and do here. One of the biggest attractions here is the Formula 1 race, and I was surprised to find out how few Israelis are aware of this international event. One of my goals is to fix this by next year," Mukhtar Mamadov said.
