Egypt received about 500,000 tourists during the first quarter of 2021, bringing to the North African country between $600 million and $800 million in tourism revenues, according to news reports.
Sky News Arabia quoted the country's deputy tourism minister Ghada Shalabi as saying that the bulk of the tourists visited Egypt in March.
Last month's visitors doubled the numbers recorded in February, the deputy minister said.
Egypt reopened its border for international flights in July 2020 after a closure to curb the spreading of coronavirus.
Meanwhile, Shalabi said about 2 million tourists visited Egypt from 20 countries since the resumption of international flights.
Egypt's tourism sector accounts for about 12% of the country's economy.
The country recorded a slump in tourism since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic.
Egypt's tourism revenue is projected to recover to $7 billion in 2022.
