During the first three months of 2024, over 1.7 million foreign tourists visited Albania or 59% more compared to the same period of 2023.

The month of March marked a new record of tourist inflows of almost 735 thousand foreign visitors or 91% more compared to March last year.

The figures were made public by the Minister of Tourism and Environment Mirela Kumbaro on her official website:

"Over 1.7 million foreign tourists have visited us during the first 3 months of 2024. 734 thousand foreign visitors came to Albania during the month of March, which just marked a new standard in numbers and we must respond with the same standard in hospitality", Minister Kumbaro announced.

A day ago, the Minister of Tourism and Environment from the International Tourism Fair underlined that the challenge is no longer numbers, but the guarantee of standards, quality and elite tourism.

The coming week starts with an important event for tourism, such as the 70th meeting of the Commission for Europe of the World Tourism Organization and the Investment Conference during which the "Tourism Doing Business: Investing in Albania" guide will be presented. This it is the first time that Albania officially hosts an event of the World Tourism Organization.
