Saudi Arabia Tourism Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, tourism associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on Saudi Arabia's tourism industry.

Saudi Arabia’s tourism industry is unique in that despite the limitations of strict entrance visa regulations, the industry has strong growth potential. BMI forecasts tourist arrivals to the country to grow by 5% year-on-year (y-o-y) to 12.91mn in 2010, after remaining constant in 2009, at just over 12mn.

Furthermore, we forecast tourist arrivals to grow by an average of 6.5% y-o-y to the end of our forecast period in 2014. One of the main drivers for the tourism industry is religious tourism. Saudi Arabia is home to two of Islam’s holiest cities, Mecca and Medina, and every year millions of Muslims come to Mecca for hajj, the largest annual pilgrimage in the world. In 2009, we expected concern about the spread of the H1N1 virus (swine flu) to cause a slight decline in pilgrimage numbers but we do not expect the virus to put much downward pressure on the industry in 2010, barring a major outbreak.
