Spain Welcomes Back Big Spenders as Arrivals Soared 8-Fold in MAR

Spain saw 4 million visitors in MAR 2022 after many of the country’s pandemic restrictions were lifted. That’s a number more than eight times bigger than the same month in 2021, according to data from Spain’s National Institute of Statistics (INE).

In addition, foreign travellers spent USD $5.37 billion during their visits in MAR 2022, up from USD $580 million in MAR 2021, reports Skift. “Spain closes this first quarter with good data on arrivals and tourist spending, a trend that we hope will intensify in the summer period,” Tourist Minister Reyes Maroto said. The number of tourists coming to Spain in MAR 2022 was still 1.6 million under MAR 2019 numbers.
