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 announced its embassy would move to Jerusalem on November 2, 2018 following the election of its new president Jair Bolsonaro who made the pledge during his campaign.[4] Paraguay also announced that their embassy would move to Jerusalem on May 22, 2018 which was reversed on 5 September 2018 by bringing the embassy back to Tel Aviv.[5]

As of October 2018, two countries operate embassies to Israel in Jerusalem, 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.
