Spain: Four million tourists spent Over €5 Billion in March 2022


The Spanish government has announced that in March, the average spending of tourists visiting Spain was around €1,257 per person, which marks an annual increase of 13.6 per cent from the amount of €1,068 that tourists spent on average in March 2019.

In a statement issued on May 5, the government also stated that total spending in March marked over €5 billion or 84 per cent of pre-pandemic levels, according to reports.


According to the Fontur and Egatur survey published on May 5 by the National Institute of Statistics (INE), Spain welcomed four billion international tourists in the same month, which is 71 per cent of those who arrived three years ago.

“The United Kingdom was the main source market in March with nearly 826,399 tourists (18.3 per cent of the total) and in terms of spending volume with €1,013 million (20.0 per cent of the total),” the statement reads.

In addition, Minister of Industry, Trade, and Tourism Reyes Maroto said that Spain is closing the first quarter of 2022 with good figures for international tourist arrivals and tourism expenditures, a trend which is expected to intensify in the summer period.

“The excellent employment figures that we have seen in April, and specifically in the hotel and catering sector due to the extraordinary Easter Week, together with the recovery of pre-pandemic levels in scheduled air capacity on international flights, which exceeds 29 million seats for the April-June quarter, are results that make us optimistic,” she pointed out in this regard.

The number of tourists visiting Spain in the first three months of 2022 increased by 696.7 per cent, thus reaching almost 9.7 million. Meanwhile, in the same period of 2021, 1.2 million tourists arrived.

Moreover, regarding the visitor’s place of residence, the annual growth was more pronounced in Ireland with 2593.7 per cent, the United States with 1,976.5 per cent, and the Nordic countries with 1,292.8 per cent.
