Saudi Arabia ranked as the top Arab country with the most tourists during the first nine months of 2022, with 18 million visitors to the country.

The figures issued by the United Nations World Tourism Organization show that the Saudi Arabia attracted more than 18 million visitors in the first three quarters of 2022, followed by the UAE with 14.8 million tourists, and Morocco with 11 million tourists.
