TBC CAPITAL: Georgia’s international tourist arrivals improved noticeably

Growth rate of Georgia’s international tourist arrivals has improved noticeably in Q2 2021 compared to the previous quarter.


The number of overnight trips amounted 96.5 thousand in May 2021, posting a 23% recovery of the 2019 level


The dynamics differ by countries, with improvement also seen in the region. A more accelerated recovery is observed in Turkey, where tourists are exempt from the mobility restrictions.



Number of international visits through Batumi Airport has improved substantially, at -35% in May relative to 2019.


Arrivals at Tbilisi and Kutaisi Airports were down by -74% and by -83% in the same period, respectively.


As land borders are now open, we expect the recovery to accelerate further on the back of visitors from neighboring countries, which accounted for 71% of international visitor trips to Georgia in 2019. Albeit, for visitor countries, the level of vaccinated population should also be taken into consideration, which is relatively lower in the region.
