Dear Visitor,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the website of the Embassy of Hungary in Tel Aviv.

It is an honour to represent my country as ambassador to Israel at a time when relations between the two countries have reached an unprecedented high level. The political relationship based on mutual respect is complemented by a rapidly intertwining and growing web of human and business relations.

The two countries have formed a close alliance at international fora and Hungary has consistently opposed politically motivated attacks stigmatizing Israel in the world of diplomacy. For many hundreds of young Israelis every year, the universities of Hungary represent the alma mater, the starting point of successful professional careers. Israeli and Hungarian investors are finding expanding opportunities in each other's markets, including taking a joint role in the fight against the pandemic. Year after year, the number of Israeli tourists visiting Hungary peaked, and by 2019, they became the tenth most numerous group of foreigners interested in Hungary. In addition to gastronomic and cultural experiences, Israelis visiting us find one of the largest and most prosperous Jewish communities in Europe. As the pandemic subsides, we welcome those who are (re)discovering their own Hungarian roots, those with business and/or educational intentions - but also those who simply want to spend a few days in a country that is open and hospitable to Israel. For all of them, we can say with certainty that today Hungary is one of the friendliest and safest environments in Europe.

With our refurbished website, we would like to give you a taste of the above. If you wish to visit us in person, we warm-heartedly welcome you to come by to the Embassy of Hungary in Tel-Aviv, or our Trade Office in Jerusalem.

Enjoy browsing and lehitraot!
