< p> According to the Dubai Department of Economics and Tourism, the top 5 countries in terms of arrivals in Dubai for the first half of the year are as follows:

  • India (858 thousand arrivals);
  • Oman (787,000 arrivals);
  • Saudi Arabia (543,000 arrivals);
  • United Kingdom (506,000 arrivals);
  • Russia (309,000 arrivals).

Relying on the data of the Department of Economics and Tourism of Dubai and the Border Service of the Federal Security Service of Russia, ATOR estimated the structure of the traffic of Russian tourists in United Arab Emirates. Thus, in the first half of 2022, the FSB Border Service recorded 466.4 thousand entries to UAE airports.

According to estimates, Dubai accounts for 80-85% of tourists. Since 309 thousand tourists from the Russian Federation came to Dubai, in total, approximately 366-386 thousand Russians could potentially come to all the emirates for tourism purposes. Thus, about 80-100 thousand passengers transited from Russia to Europe and Asia through the UAE.
