International tourism

The World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) predicts an uptick in international mobility with the global vaccination rollout and adoption of digital solutions for safe travel. But four of the 10 top source market, which generated 25% of all international arrivals in 2018, have been advising their citizens against non-essential travel abroad. Destinations with the strictest measures have some of the lowest rates of vaccination, establishing a link between the speed of mass inoculation and easing of restrictions.

"Governments are instrumental for the restart and recovery of tourism through collaboration, use of data and digital solutions," says UNWTO Secretary-General Zurab Pololikashvili.
