Definition: Guest arrival/departure

Tourism

A guest arrival/departure is defined as a person who arrives at/leaves a collective accommodation establishment or private tourism accommodation and checks in/out.
Because tourists arrive at and leave from an accommodation establishment within a relatively short time, there is statistically not much difference between the numbers of arrivals and departures. The arrivals of non-tourists (refugees, guests on medical referral, etc.) should be counted separately, if possible.
