*Number of foreign visitors, exluding lorry-drivers.  aDue to the emergency measures in relation with the coronavirus epidemic, including the border closure introduced and the suspended data collection from mid-March, data on tourism demand in Q1 2020 are only available for the period 1 January to 13 March 2020 and therefore these only have limited comparability with data from previous periods.  bDue to the border closure ordered as a result of the coronavirus emergency, the data collection concerning tourism was suspended in the second quarter of 2020, so the data for the period are not available.  cThe accuracy of the estimate is not reliable.
