Spain tourism is the second worst hit since the COVID-19 outbreak. It has been reported that Spain experienced a revenue loss of $9.7 million, owing to a steep drop in international tourists since June. It USA tourism also suffered a huge revenue loss which is around $31 million.

Other tourist spots such as Turks and Caicos Island have also experienced restricted visits and have lost over an amount of 9.2% of their GDP owing to the tourism decrease in Aruba, Barbuda, St Lucia, Grenada and Antigua. They are now listed in the top ten worst affected tourism countries in Caribbean.

Worldwide travel and tourism experienced a huge loss due to the sudden outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic and at present the industry records a loss of around $195 billion.

Under the new normal rules, business attractions like bars and restaurants will remain closed following the COVID-19 rules. This has also affected the local revenue generation. Tourism, the third biggest industry in Spain supports the country’s economy. And 11% of the nation’s GDP is accumulated from travel as well as hospitality business.

Records confirm that 84 million tourists visited Spain last year, unfortunately the travel restrictions have brought a halt in past 12 months and now the country is crippled under new restrictions and travel policies. This has influenced negatively on travel decisions leading to a steep drop in hotel reservations and regular flight cancellation.

News rules of public smoking and social distancing have further affected visitor’s movement in restaurants and bars. At Andalusia the regional government has implemented fines on anyone who breaks coronavirus rules.
