Tunisia: tourism revenues collapse by 3 billion dinars at end October

Tunisia’s tourism revenues have continued to fall since last May as a result of travel restrictions and measures taken by the authorities to cope with the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

Hence, at the end of the first ten of the current year, Tunisia’s revenue from the tourism sector fell by 62% compared to the same period last year, or -3 billion dinars, to 1.8 billion at end October, according to data from the Central Bank of Tunisia (BCT).

This drop is the result of the collapse in the number of foreign visitors due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The setbacks of tourism, a crucial sector accounting for 14% of Tunisian GDP, heavily affect the Tunisian economy which last year saw a record number of 9.5 million visitors.
