Tourism in Algeria

Algeria recorded a total of 591,000 tourists in 2020, ranking 120th in the world in absolute terms.
Without including the size of a country, such a ranking list may not be very meaningful. By putting the tourist numbers in relation to the population of Algeria, the result is much more comparable picture: With 0.013 tourists per resident, Algeria ranked 181st in the world. In Northern Africa, it ranked 6th.
Algeria generated around 50.00 million US Dollar in the tourism sector alone. This corresponds to 0.030 percent of its the gross domestic product and approximately 0 percent of all international tourism receipts in Northern Africa.

Development of the tourism sector in Algeria from 1995 to 2020

The following chart shows the number of tourist arrivals registered in Algeria each year. Anyone who spends at least one night in the country but does not live there for more than 12 months is considered a tourist. Insofar as the survey included the purpose of the trip, business trips and other non-tourism travel purposes have already been excluded. The number of people passing through within the same day, and e.g. crew members of ships or flights are also not considered as tourists in most countries. If the same person travels in and out more than once within the same year, each visit counts again.
Data in the chart are given in millions of tourists. The red line represents the average of all 6 countries in Northern Africa.

Revenues in tourism

In 1995, tourism revenues amounted to 32.00 million USD, or about 0.077 percent of the gross national product. This corresponded to about 520,000 tourists at that time and roughly 62 USD per person. Within 25 years, the country's dependence on tourism has increased slightly. Before the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, sales took up $140.00 million billion, 0.082 percent of gross national product. Thus, each visitor spent an average of $59 on their vacation in Algeria.
In 2020, tourist receipts plummeted due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Of the $140.00 million billion (2019), only $50.00 million billion remained. This is a 64 percent decrease in Algeria.

Our data on tourist numbers, revenues and expenditures are based on information from the World Tourism Organization. However, to ensure international comparability, the data for some years or countries were manually researched and corrected if they obviously included visitors without overnight stays. In these cases, the data were taken from the official communications of the respective national tourism authorities.
The WTO additionally points out that in some countries the number of tourists is only counted at airports, in others also at border crossings or even hotels. A comprehensive and reliable indication is therefore hardly possible in any country.
