Map of nations with diplomatic missions in Israel

Diplomatic missions in Israel are foreign embassies and consulates in Israel. There are currently 90 embassies in Israel, of which 86 embassies are located in Tel Aviv and the Tel Aviv District,[1] and four are located in Jerusalem. In addition to an embassy, some countries also maintain a consulate in Eilat, Haifa or Jerusalem.

On 6 December 2017 the President of the United States, Donald Trump announced that the US embassy to Israel would be moved to Jerusalem.[2] The move was made on 14 May 2018.[3] In April 2018, Guatemala announced that their embassy would move to Jerusalem,[4] which it did the following month. Honduras followed in June 2021. Brazil has reflected on moving the Embassy to Jerusalem, as well,[5] along with Hungary, Moldova, and Romania.[6] Paraguay's embassy was briefly located in Jerusalem in 2018, then returned to Tel Aviv after a few months.[7] Others have vowed to make the move, including Armenia, Uganda, Rwanda, and Serbia. A few other countries have opened official Trade and Defense offices and branches of their embassies, such as Hungary and Australia.

Twelve countries operate Honorary Consulates accredited to Israel in Jerusalem, and 9 countries operate consulates in Jerusalem accredited for the West Bank and Gaza Strip. These are not regarded as diplomatic missions to Israel yet are located within Jerusalem municipal boundary.



Tel Aviv and metropolitan area[edit]


Embassies to open[edit]





Other Missions in Jerusalem[edit]

These are the list of countries that operate consulates within the Jerusalem municipal boundary but are accredited to 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.[18] 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.
