Definition: Duration of a visit


The duration of a visit (stay or trip) is measured in the units of the number of hours for same-day visits, and of nights for staying visits. The duration is measured either in terms of time spent in the receiving place/country for inbound tourism (= Duration of the stay), or time away from the usual residence for outbound tourism 
(= Duration of the trip).
