According to the United Nations World Tourism Organization, international tourist arrivals (overnight visitors) decreased by 70% from January to August 2020 compared to the same time last year (UNWTO).

From January to August 2020, Asia-Pacific, which was the first to be impacted by the epidemic, saw a 79% decline in arrivals. While international travel demand continues to decline, regional tourism in several significant economies, such as China and Russia, is on the rise. Domestic tourism is contributing in the recovery of a number of locations, although only to a limited level in the majority of situations.
