The number of tourists from Russia in the UAE is close to half a million
Over the nine months of the year, 12,08 million tourists visited Dubai, according to the report of the Department of Tourism and Commercial Marketing of the Emirate. India became the leader in terms of tourist flow with 1,39 million foreign visitors.
In the summer, the increase in tourist flow was also connected with the abolition of visa duties for children under the age of 18. As a result, Indian families brought 13% more children to Dubai than in the summer of 2018.
Russia is on the seventh position in terms of the volume of tourist flow in the UAE with an indicator of 433 thousand arrivals. The growth is also connected with a visa-free regime and a large number of direct flights, including from regions of the country.
Together with Russia, tourists from Saudi Arabia, Great Britain, Oman, China, the USA, Germany, Pakistan and the Philippines showed great interest in the Emirates.
