In recent years, Ajman has experienced a notable increase in tourism, both from domestic and international travelers. In 2023, October witnessed a 5% rise in tourism activity, with an 11% increase in the number of visitors.

International arrivals in 2023 saw a remarkable 29% increase compared to 2022, with international visitors accounting for 60% of Ajman’s total arrivals. This growth highlights Ajman’s rising prominence on the global tourism map, with diverse source markets contributing to its success. Notably, young adults (aged 19-35) and middle-aged travelers (aged 36-55) constituted around 70% of total arrivals.

In the first quarter of 2024, the positive trend continued, with a 7% increase in total revenues compared to the same period in 2023. This growth was supported by a 3% rise in occupancy rates and a notable 9% increase in the total number of visitors. Additionally, the average Length of Stay (LOS) increased by 5%, indicating visitors are spending more time in Ajman.

Leisure remains the primary reason for visiting Ajman, representing approximately 70% of total arrivals. The top international feeder markets include GCC countries, the Russian Federation, India, the UK, and Egypt, with the local UAE market also playing a crucial role.
