Tourists from Gulf countries are known to spend more overseas

Published on : Monday, December 24, 2018

Tourists from Gulf countries are known to spend significantly while travelling overseas. Hence, tourism authorities in many countries are aiming to entice Gulf visitors by offering incentives, as well as pre-arranging their visas.

 

Holders of UAE passports enjoy exceptional advantages as some 167 countries do not require Emiratis to have prearranged visas.

 

Many countries now aim to attract Gulf visitors via visa wavers, easy availability of halal food and dedicated places for prayers.

 

As per a report by the UNWTO and the European Travel Commission, tourism expenditures from the six-nation Gulf bloc surpassed $69 billion (Dh253.43 billion) in 2017. In comparison, spending stood at $40 billion in 2010.

 

The two entities are projecting higher spending on the part of Gulf tourists in the coming years, with two categories expected to make the highest contributions — families and youths.

 

Carriers from the Gulf have the capacity to create travel opportunities. Aviation is a source of strength for GCC economies.
