Despite increasing from the previous year, international travel generated 63 percent of its pre-virus level in 2022, according to the UN tourism agency.

According to figures released on Tuesday by the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), there were 917 million tourists who traveled abroad in total in 2017. This represents an increase of 101.6% from the previous year.

International visitor numbers increased across the board, with the Middle East seeing the biggest improvement, up 83% from pre-Covid levels.

Thanks to hosting events like Expo 2020 in Dubai and the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, as well as the well-attended Muslim Hajj pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia, visitor arrivals to the area increased 144.4 percent year over year in 2022.

By 2022, Europe will have made 80% of what it did before the virus, with 585 million tourists arriving there.

Due to mobility constraints brought on by Covid, Asia, and the Pacific only made up about 23% of their pre-virus visitation while Africa and the Americas recovered over 65 percent of them.

It is anticipated that this year’s international visitor arrivals will be between 80% and 95% of pre-pandemic levels, with the Middle East and Europe expected to approach those levels.

The UNWTO anticipates that China’s elimination of the Covid-19 limitations will be beneficial for Asian destinations, especially in the short term, depending on the cost and accessibility of air travel, visa requirements, and local Covid-related restrictions.

It remembered that, as of mid-January, 32 nations—mostly in Asia and Europe—had placed particular travel restrictions on citizens traveling from China.

It is anticipated that strong US travel demand and a strong euro will support more travel to Europe.
