When will US inbound travel fully recover?

For the first time since the pandemic, the National Travel and Tourism Office released its international visitation forecast

Mar 15, 2023

According to the NTTO data, inbound travel is expected to fully recover to pre-pandemic levels in 2025 and reach 91 million international visitations by 2027, which is in line with the government’s recently-announced National Travel and Tourism Strategy.

Key takeaways

  • The study found that total visitations in 2023 would reach 79 percent of pre-pandemic levels, as tourism numbers from China and Japan remained depressed;
  • In 2024, the recovery is expected to increase significantly, reaching 94 percent of pre-pandemic totals;
  • NTTO projects that inbound travel will get 115 percent of 2019 levels by 2027.
