Glossary:Arrival of tourist at a tourist accommodation establishment

See arrival disambiguation page for other meanings of arrival.

Within the context of European Union (EU) tourism statistics, an arrival is defined as a tourist who arrives at a tourist accommodation establishment (rented accommodation) or at a non-rented accommodation; in the scope of the Tourism Regulation, however, no data for the latter are collected.

The tourist can be either a resident or a non-resident of the country where the establishment is located; no age limit is applied: children are counted as well as adults, even in the case when the overnight stays of children might be free of charge.
