Saudi Arabia Welcomes Record Breaking 100 Million Tourists in 2023

Saudi Arabia achieved a significant milestone in its tourism sector by welcoming over 100 million tourist visitors in 2023, marking a 56% increase compared to 2019. This achievement, accomplished seven years earlier than projected under Vision 2030, underscores the country's emergence as a prominent global tourism destination.

Of the total visitors, around 77 million were domestic travelers, while approximately 27 million were international tourists. Their spending amounted to over USD 67 billion, according to data from the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO).

The Saudi Tourism Authority acknowledges the accomplishment as a reflection of the nation's rapid growth in the tourism sector. Efforts to improve connectivity and infrastructure aim to enhance accessibility for international visitors, opening up new opportunities for the travel trade industry.

The country strives towards its goal of welcoming 150 million tourists by 2030.
