Spain raises to 85 million the international tourists it will receive in 2023


The data collected by the consultancy Braintrust suggest that Spain will receive a record number of 85 million international tourists during this 2023. In addition, these data would reflect an increase compared to the 83 million people who visited the country in 2019, this being the last year before the pandemic arrived.

In his latest barometer published this WednesdayBraintrust ensures that the joint spending of these tourists will be 12% above pre-covid levels, standing close to 100,000 million euros. Specifically, during the strong summer months -July and August- there would be more than 10 million foreign visitors in each of them, with a slightly higher volume in August.

The consultant acknowledges that the data “invite optimism”, although it warns that His forecasts will come true as long as the economy maintains its good behavior both from a growth point of view, as well as the moderation of inflation in the main issuing markets of Spain.

In 2022, Braintrust recalls that international tourists reached 71.6 millionstill 14.3% below 2019 levels, although the average spend figure per traveler was 10.5% higher (1,217 euros) and the average duration of trips increased by 5.7% to 7 ,5 days.

These premises come just at a stage in which the tourism industry is going to experience great advances. In this context, the autonomous communities are investing large amounts so as not to lose momentum. The last one that has joined this trend has been the Junta de Andalucía, which is going to mobilize up to €7.5 million from the Recovery and Resilience Mechanisms. José Luis Escudero, Minister of Sustainable Development, has explained that “Andalusia has become a national reference for natural tourism.”
