That’s the evaluation of numerous industry insiders, assisted by in-depth research shows that there has been a drop in the number of visitors to this country as a whole.
A study from ForwardKeys—an organization that primarily focuses on global travel patterns—indicate that ever since January 27, when the first travel ban was imposed (seeking to bar entry for citizens from seven countries), around 1.4 percent decrease in international visitors in comparison to the same period in 2016, as the Boston Globe reported.
In addition to raising uncertainty and fear among tourists, Trump’s bans have equally translated into a loss of billions of US dollars as well.
So far, three versions of the ban of President Trump have been declared. Court proceedings upturned two versions previously and a Hawaii federal judge of late has blocked the administration from executing its third attempted ban.
As per the report of TravelPulse’s Donald Wood, the Hawaii judge explained the that recent ban overlooked rulings by the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, which mentioned that earlier orders surpassed the capacity of President Trump’s authority and encouraged discrimination based on nationality.
Nevertheless, every time the bans creates headline, tourists across the globe gets anxious and shy away from visiting this country, according to The Boston Globe.
“There has been a Trump slump, and the strong dollar has compounded it,” Olivier Jager, chief executive for ForwardKeys, told The Boston Globe. “This must be worrying for the US economy.”
