Dubai has doubled the number of international overnight visitors it welcomed in 2022 compared to the previous year. The emirate received 14.36 million visitors in 2022, growing 97 per cent year on year from the 7.28 million tourist arrivals in 2021, according to the latest data published by Dubai's Department of Economy and Tourism (DET). Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, said: "The exceptional growth in the inflow of visitors reflects Dubai's continued rise as one of the world's most connected cities and its determination to lead the world in hospitality infrastructure and service levels. Dubai's 2022 performance features some spikes in the city's traditional key markets and strong growth across emerging ones. The emirate remained a first-choice safe travel destination for visitors from the city's stronghold markets. From a regional perspective, Western Europe and GCC regions each accounted for a 21 per cent share of arrivals. The GCC region, in particular, saw an exponential increase in their share of arrivals from 13 per cent in 2021 to 21 per cent last year. South Asia contributed 17 per cent of total volumes, while the MENA region had 12 per cent. The Americas accounted for seven per cent of arrivals, while the North Asia and South East Asia region and Africa each contributed five per cent, and Australasia accounted for two per cent.
