What is the definition of "inbound tourism"?

Answer

Inbound tourism, as the term implies, is the industry that supports the travel of people visiting a country other than their own. The country responsible for the most inbound tourism to the United States is Canada.

Since tourism is a major industry that generates billions of dollars in revenue each year, countries track inbound tourists. This not only helps countries know who is visiting, it also helps them generate travel campaigns to increase inbound tourism numbers and, thus, increase tourism revenue. Countries can also monitor inbound tourism for unusual spikes in patterns which may be indicative of developing global issues. Not all inbound tourism is holiday related, however. Some inbound tourism is attributable to business.
