During a meeting with Egyptian Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly, last Wednesday, March 15, Egypt’s Minister of Tourism and Antiquities, Ahmed Issa Taha announced that Egypt saw 11.7 million tourists in 2022 with an expected increase of 28 percent in 2023.
During the meeting, he also mentioned a 35 percent growth rate in the tourism sector across the months of January and February, in comparison to the same period last year.
The increase is due to significant efforts taken by the Egyptian government to boost tourism, such as simplifying the process of obtaining a tourism visa.
The meeting ended with Taha expressing that Egypt needs to further expand its hotel capacities and further collaborate with travel operators and international airlines.
