Foreign tourist arrivals up 68.3% in first 4 months

Foreign tourist arrivals up 68.3% in first 4 months. Facilitative visa policies and attractive tourism stimulus programmes have proven effective in attracting a high number of international visitors to Vietnam compared to the same period last year.

The first quarter 2024 number is also 3.2 per cent higher than the first quarter of 2019, the year before the Covid-19 pandemic struck and also when Việt Nam scored its biggest arrivals number of over 18 million, which shows recovery is on the way for the tourism sector.

This positive result is due to favourable visa policies, tourism stimulus programmes, and the efforts of the Government and domestic tourism businesses.

Visitors from Asian countries continued to make up the largest portion in the total figure, with over 3.5 million arrivals (up 81.6 per cent year-on-year), followed by visitors from European nations with 661,800 arrivals (up 71.9 per cent). Up 302,300 visitors were from the Americas (up 14.5 per cent), 143,700 were from Oceania (up 37.2 per cent), and 13,100 from Africa (up 112.1 per cent).
