Tourist footfalls in the state dived 71% in 2020 compared to 2019 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. But recovery has been steady after the lockdown started to be lifted in June last year and movement of people began albeit with restrictions.

In fact, in the first two months of 2021, the deficit in visitors, compared to January and February in 2020, has shrunk further to 49% despite curbs on the movement of foreign travelers.

After April and May turned a dud with zero visitors, the state received 26,113 visitors in June. Rajasthan was the first in the country to open its state monuments for visitors from June 2. The numbers continued to rise steadily, reaching 13.59 lakh tourists in December 2020.

In January and February this year, the inflow further strengthened as the state received 16.02 lakh and 18.55 lakh tourists, respectively.

A senior tourist department official said the upward trend was expected to continue in the coming months through the lean summer season was likely to run its course.

“Given the way the pandemic has disrupted life and businesses, the steady pace of growth in tourist inflow is reassuring. From the days of gloom, we have reached a stage where we expect to touch the pre-Covid days.

The department is playing its part to revive the sector. We are participating in tourism marts happening in various cities and activating our source markets.

Also, the restart of tourism fairs and festivals will contribute to the revival,” said Nishant Jain, director of, department of tourism.
