The Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics (CAPMAS) registered an increase by 8.3 percent in the number of tourists visiting Egypt in September.
Some 944,000 tourists visited the country in September this year compared with 917,000 tourists in 2011, the agency said.
The increase, however, is not close to the rate of 1.2 million tourists reached in 2010 for the same month.
The majority of tourists came from Western Europe followed by Mideast countries and Eastern Europe.
They spent 12.1 million tourist nights in September of 2012, compared with 15.9 million tourist nights in September last year, according to CAPMAS.
