Thus, the number of tourists from Russia in Dubai turned out to be 5% more than in 2019. According to official data from the Department of Tourism and Trade Marketing of Dubai, 454,000 Russian tourists visited Dubai in the first 9 months of 2022. In 2019, their number reached 433 thousand people. As a result, Russian tourists entered the top 5 foreign visitors to Dubai in 2022.

The capital of the Emirates, Abu Dhabi, is also not deprived of demand from Russians. Moreover, in percentage terms, the growth is much more significant. In June this year, the number of our tourists in the emirate increased by 50% compared to 2019, in July – by 78%, in August – by 71.5%.
