Egypt has welcomed seven million tourists in the first half of this year, putting the country on track for its projected 15 million visitors in 2023.
After reaching a record 13 million tourists and earning 13 billion U.S. dollars in 2019, Egypt’s tourism industry was hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.
This week the country’s statistical arm, the Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics, released figures from the 2021-2022 fiscal year, showing outstanding year-on- year growth. Egypt received 11.7 million tourists, up from eight million in the 2020-2021 fiscal year.
