Qatari tourists last year!In 2016, number of Qatari nationals travelling to Turkey reached 32,681, as per the statistics released by the Turkish consulate general cultural and information office in Dubai. To quote Salih Ozer, ‘This growth shows that Turkey is culturally and economically interesting for GCC travelers. Over the past year, we have conducted many workshops and seminars for our GCC travel agents to get them better acquainted with what Turkey has to offer the GCC traveller.’

Turkey has fortified its position as one of the top vacationing places for GCC nationals and residents. A total number of 822,849 holiday makers from GCC explored Turkey and its attractions from January to December 2016.

To quote Ozer, ‘We attach a great level of importance to these deepening relations between Turkey and the Gulf countries. Qatar, in particular, continues to contribute heavily to Turkey’s tourist numbers, and we have taken many steps to simplify GCC tourist access to Turkey by facilitating visas for them in a quicker fashion.’

Based on tourism arrival and revenues, Turkey is one of the top places to explore! It has everything that a travel fanatic loves starting right from nature, outdoors, archeology, and history to beach. Tourists from everywhere in GCC can find spectacular experiences right in Turkey.
