In January 2023, Russia took the leading position in terms of tourist flow to the Seychelles.
In the first month of 2023, a total of 23,315 visits were made to the Seychelles, which was 8.1% more than in January 2022. According to ATOR, citing Seychelles statistics, the TOP countries by arrivals are as follows:
- Russia (3,688 visits);
- Germany (2,515);
- France (2,171);
- United Kingdom (1,025);
- Italy (932).
Clarifies that out of 3,688 arrivals of Russian tourists to the Seychelles, 13% are repeat trips. Germany is in first place in terms of return, with 17% of repeat visits.
Compared to January 2022, the number of arrivals of Russians decreased by 34.4%. In January last year, Russians made 5,625 trips. The decline can be explained by the fact that a year ago the Seychelles were one of the few open beach winter destinations, while now Russians have more options for winter holidays.
