Tourism is set to become one of the main economic sectors of Azerbaijan, as new data indicates about one million tourists visited between January to June of 2016.

World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) experts predict that Azerbaijan will generate US$1.834 billion (AED 6.6 billion) this year, a 6.4% increase compared to 2015, according to local media.

The research also showed that approximately 600 to 1,000 visitors from Arab countries travel to Azerbaijan every day, mainly from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman and Iraq, spending a minimum of US$ 150-200 (AED 550-734) daily.

The total number of tourists coming to the country has increased by 30 times this May compared to last year, according to the Culture and Tourism Ministry.

Hospitality options became even more attractive for visitors as a result of the devaluation in the national currency in 2015.
