Turkey’s tourism revenue surged 190.2 percent from a year earlier to $8.717 billion in the second quarter, Reuters reported, citing data from the Turkish Statistical Institute on Friday.

It said 83.8 percent of this income was derived from foreign visitors and 16.2 percent from Turkish citizens residing abroad.

In 2021 Turkey’s tourism revenue doubled to almost $25 billion, recovering from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, but remained well below the $34.5 billion recorded in 2019.
