North Africa Destination Tourism Market Trends

National lockdowns and travel restrictions to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic destabilized major incoming source severely effecting the inbound tourism. This decline was further driven by the decline of European travelers visiting Morocco, Egypt, and Tunisia, where package vacations are particularly popular. Egypt saw the smallest decline in inbound tourism in 2021. However, instead of emphasizing a speedy recovery, Egypt’s tourism minister emphasized reassuring guests of safety procedures and ensuring proper safeguards were in place across all key attractions, hotels, and resorts. But Morocco chose a far more prudent strategy by stopping foreign flights in March 2020. In July 2020, flights began under the condition that passengers were either Moroccan citizens or foreign residents of the Kingdom.
