Last September, Spain received the visit of 7.8 million international tourists, 66.3 % more than in the same month of 2021, according to data published this Tuesday by the National Institute of Statistics (INE). With this, in the first nine months of 2022 the number of tourists who visited Spain increased by 183.5 % and exceeded 55.9 million.
These tourists spent 9,243 million euros, which represents an increase of 83 % compared to the same month in 2021, when it was 5,051 million.
With this new rise in September, both the arrival of international tourists and the spending they make in Spain have already accumulated fifteen consecutive months of year-on-year increases after the break due to the coronavirus.
The data of the 55.9 million tourists who visited Spain in the first nine months contrasts with the 19.7 million who arrived in the same period of 2021, a period still affected by the pandemic and travel restrictions.
The main sending countries in the first nine months of 2022 were the United Kingdom (with almost 12 million tourists and an annual increase of 414.6 %), France (with more than 7.9 million, and an increase of 96.1 %) and Germany (with 7.7 million, 127.5 % more).
