Tourism market review 2022

A review of the tourism market 2022 by the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO).

According to the latest UNWTO World Tourism Barometer, international tourism saw a 182% year-on-year increase in January-March 2022, with destinations worldwide welcoming an estimated 117 million international arrivals compared to 41 million in Q1 2021. Of the extra 76 million international arrivals for the first three months, about 47 million were recorded in March, showing that the recovery is gathering pace.

Although international tourism remains 61% below 2019 levels, the gradual recovery is expected to continue throughout 2022, as more destinations ease or lift travel restrictions and pent-up demand is unleashed. As of 2 June, 45 destinations (of which 31 are in Europe) had no COVID-19-related limits in place. In Asia, an increasing number of destinations have started to ease those restrictions.

In 2022, International tourist arrivals are expected to reach 55% to 70% of 2019 levels 2022.

The tourism industry is actively recovering worldwide; there is an opportunity to return to the indicators of 2019 in 2023.
