Tourist arrivals to Cyprus drop by 84% during 2020 due to Covid-19

Tourist arrivals in Cyprus reached a mere 631,609 plunging by 84.1% year on year in one of the worst ever season for Cyprus’ tourist industry which took a heavy blow by the coronavirus pandemic, CNA reports.


Hit by the Covid-19 pandemic the 2020 tourist season ended four record years of tourist arrivals in Cyprus. In 2019 tourist arrivals amounted to 3.97 million.


Tourist arrivals nosedived in 2020 as Cyprus enforced lockdown measures to limit the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic including a two-month travel ban which was gradually lifted in early July, as well as travel restrictions imposed by Cyprus’ main tourist markets.


In December, tourist arrivals amounted to just 9,682, marking an annual reduction of 91.2%, Cystat said.
