Over 8.6 million tourists visited Greece in January-August 2021

The number of tourists visiting Greece in the first eight months of 2021 exceeded 8.6 million, the Bank of Greece said on Friday.

According to the bank, this is 79.3% more than in January-August 2020.

The above data is reflected in an increase in profit of 135.7%, which amounted to 6.6 billion euros compared to the previous year, which can be further broken down into an increase of 146.2% for residents of the EU-27 member states (4.465 billion euros ) and an increase of 102 percent from non-EU citizens (€ 1.971 billion).

However, this figure is 5 times less in monetary terms and 3.5 times less in the number of tourists compared to 2019.
