8.3 million tourists visited Egypt in 2017, Reuters reported yesterday citing a government official. This marks a 54 percent increase in the number of tourists compared to 2016, according to Reuters.

The jump in tourist numbers last year boosted tourism revenues by 123.5 percent year-on-year to $7.6 billion.

The number of tourists visiting Egypt is still far from the levels that flocked to the country before 2011 when mass uprisings plunged it into political and economic uncertainties that have impacted its tourism sector.
