Cyprus has almost returned to pre-Covid tourism levels, the country’s authorities have said.
Latest figures show that the Mediterranean island country’s visitor numbers recovered to 80% of pre-Covid levels last year. Tourism revenues fared even better, returning to 90% of pre-Covid levels last seen in 2019.
Revenue amounted to €2.28bn, just shy of the €2.53bn generated from visiting tourists in 2019 – the last full year before the pandemic halted travel.
Visitor numbers, during 2022, amounted to 2.94 million people, close to the 3.69 million in 2019.
