Immigration News

Travel to Germany is on an increase. According to statistics from Federal Statistical Office, overnight stays by international visitors in accommodation establishments with more than ten beds totalled 64.2 million in the first eleven months of 2012.

This equates to an increase of 8.1% compared with the same period of 2011.

“According to IPK International’s latest ‘trend telegram’, Destination Germany is performing especially positively compared with other travel destinations,” said Petra Hedorfer, chief executive officer of the German National Tourist Board (GNTB). “Inbound travel to Germany is experiencing strong growth by comparison with other European countries.”

The mark of one million overnight stays by travellers from the GCC countries was outdone in 2011. The Arab Gulf States maintained a highly positive trend, with overnight stays rising by 27.7% as compared to the same timeframe in the previous year, with 1,216,490 overnight stays by GCC travellers in the first eleven months of 2012. Visitors from this region are particularly high spenders: according to IPK International’s World Travel Monitor, their average spending on a trip to Germany was €3,850 in 2011. By comparison, the average for visitors from Europe was €511.

“The GCC countries continue to represent one of the top twenty source markets in the German tourism industry,” said Antje Roeding-Boudier, Director of the Marketing & Sales Office for the Gulf Countries at the German National Tourist Office (GNTO) in Dubai.
