*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.  bThe accuracy of the estimate is not reliable.
