The global tourism and travel industry has been severely affected by the recent global travel ban which was imposed by the United Nations, and some countries have actually lost out on tourism revenue. One of the worst hit countries is India, where the tourism industry directly suffers from a large part of its annual GDP. There are many problems that India is facing in terms of infrastructure development, and the lack of investment in this area by both the Indian government and the private sector has resulted in a situation where there are many delays in projects that are required to boost the country’s economy. As a result, there is a major lack of tourist infrastructure in key cities such as New Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata. These cities have been experiencing increasing flight traffic and there has been a drastic reduction in the number of international flights that are scheduled to land at these cities.

The impact on the tourism industry in India is not confined to the direct impact that the travel ban has had on the tourism sector. The ban has indirectly affected the people too, who are leading a very busy life and are not able to find time for visiting any place in India or abroad. For the people of India, who lead very busy lives and have limited time, foreign travel is a distant dream which they do not wish to fulfill. Even the rich and affluent Indians are now looking forward to some sort of a break from their hectic routine. Hence, the major impact of the global tourism ban has been felt by the Indians too.

The best airports in the world have reported an increase in traffic following the imposition of the travel ban on India. The main air traffic controllers are now monitoring the movement of global tourists and issuing visas and exit checks at specified intervals. To facilitate the situation further, the railways too have started ferrying passengers from and to the six destinations that are affected by the ban. The major cities like Kolkata, Pune, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Surat, and Varanasi have reported a significant fall in tourism revenue. The cities that have lost tourist appeal include Kolkata (loss of the textile industry), Chennai (loss of the fish industry), Hyderabad (lack of tourists), Bangalore (lack of sightseeing opportunities), and Surat (lack of local cuisines).

Not only the cities but even the rural areas too are feeling the impact of the global recession. Places like Diriaco, Bikaner, Chittorgarh, Ranthambore, Kasauli, and Pushkar have lost out in the attention of the tourists due to the closure of the international airport and a reduction in the number of trains available. Even the best airport in India, Delhi, has witnessed a drop in tourism. The international airport in New Delhi was closed on July 15 due to violence caused in the airport by the locals. The chief minister of the state of Haryana has also ordered a review of the security measures at the airport.

A ban on travel to South Korea was also announced on July 15, causing a great loss in tourism in the state. The travel news mentioned that all travel portals had suspended operations in the state and that the customs department was advising tourists to avoid travel to the state until further notice. The ban has affected not only South Korea but also Myanmar (the name used for North Korea). According to the travel news, the Myanmar government had asked all foreign travel agencies to close their offices in the country till further notice.

There are more countries that have travel bans in place or are experiencing a slump in tourism. The travel news portal said that Egypt has lost tourist confidence over the recent years because of the ongoing political crisis. The country is going through a serious economic crisis, with the tourism sector suffering as much, if not more than other sectors. The travel ban is believed to have resulted in more tourists leaving Egypt altogether. This is unfortunate, as Egypt has been one of the most popular travel destinations in the last few years, especially with the revolution of the Arab Spring.
