Diplomatic missions in Israel refers to foreign embassies and consulates in Israel. There are currently 86 embassies in Tel Aviv and the Tel Aviv Metropolitan Area (not including honorary consulates).

Previously some states maintained embassies in Jerusalem, but currently they are all relocated to Tel Aviv with the last post-1982 being these of Costa Rica and El Salvador whose relocation was announced in August 2006.[1]

Other posts[edit]


Consulate-General in Eilat[edit]

Consulates-General in Haifa[edit]

Consulates-General in Jerusalem[edit]

The countries which operate these consulates do not regard them as diplomatic missions to Israel or Palestinian Authority, but as diplomatic missions to Jerusalem.[citation needed] The heads of these missions do not submit letters of credence to the Israeli president, PLO Chairman, PNA president, nor to any other head of state.[citation needed][clarification needed]

Some of the countries with consulates-general in Jerusalem include the contacts with the Palestinian National Authority and Palestine Liberation Organization[citation needed] in the consulate-general responsibilities. Most of the countries with consulates-general in Jerusalem have separate embassies in Tel Aviv that are accredited to Israel.
