How the Lack of U.S. Tourism Impacts Other Countries Financially

The U.S. travel restrictions have been challenging for many travelers, but the international destinations themselves - particularly those who rely heavily on the tourism industry - have felt a significant financial impact. In 2019, $233,463,000,000 was spent in international destinations by 99,744,820 U.S. citizens. But which countries are suffering the most from the temporary ban on U.S. travelers in 2020? We've broken down the financial losses from the decreased travel below by day, week, and month. This not only shows how much different countries have already potentially lost, but also how much greater the financial impact could be should the restrictions continue.

Methodology

By analyzing data from the U.S National Travel & Tourism Office, we managed to find out an estimated number of U.S. visits in 2019 for 30 countries that currently either have restrictions on U.S. entry or are listed by the U.S. government themselves as a 'Level 4 Travel Alert'.

According to the U.S. National Travel & Tourism Office, $233,463,000,000 was spent overseas by 99,744,820 U.S. visits. This means the average spend per visit for a U.S. citizen is $2,341. From this and our estimated U.S. visit data per country, we are able to find an estimated financial income loss for 2020 for all 30 countries.

The following countries with U.S. travel restrictions were removed due to data constraints: Canada, Mexico, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Slovakia, and Slovenia.
