Ghana GH: International Tourism: Number of Arrivals

1995 - 2015 | Yearly | Person | World Bank

Ghana’s GH: International Tourism: Number of Arrivals data was reported at 897,000.000 Person in Dec 2015. This records an increase from the previous number of 825,000.000 Person for Dec 2014. Ghana’s GH: International Tourism: Number of Arrivals data is updated yearly, averaging 531,000.000 Person from Dec 1995 to 2015, with 21 observations. The data reached an all-time high of 994,000.000 Person in 2013 and a record low of 286,000.000 Person in 1995. Ghana’s GH: International Tourism: Number of Arrivals data remains active status in CEIC and is reported by World Bank. The data is categorized under Global Database’s Ghana – Table GH.World Bank.WDI: Tourism Statistics. International inbound tourists (overnight visitors) are the number of tourists who travel to a country other than that in which they have their usual residence, but outside their usual environment, for a period not exceeding 12 months and whose main purpose in visiting is other than an activity remunerated from within the country visited. When data on number of tourists are not available, the number of visitors, which includes tourists, same-day visitors, cruise passengers, and crew members, is shown instead. Sources and collection methods for arrivals differ across countries. In some cases data are from border statistics (police, immigration, and the like) and supplemented by border surveys. In other cases data are from tourism accommodation establishments. For some countries number of arrivals is limited to arrivals by air and for others to arrivals staying in hotels. Some countries include arrivals of nationals residing abroad while others do not. Caution should thus be used in comparing arrivals across countries. The data on inbound tourists refer to the number of arrivals, not to the number of people traveling. Thus a person who makes several trips to a country during a given period is counted each time as a new arrival.; ; World Tourism Organization, Yearbook of Tourism Statistics, Compendium of Tourism Statistics and data files.; Gap-filled total;
