EPI Wave II Report: International Visitor Survey

ACT Research prepared this Second Wave International Visitor Survey Report for Deloitte Consulting LLP in the framework of USAID-funded Economic Prosperity Initiative (EPI). The report represents the period July to September 2011.

The research was undertaken to create an annual set of visitor surveys based on statistically valid templates and methodologies. The data produced is necessary to underpin a best-practice tourism industry in Georgia and enable Georgia’s compliance with European Union (EU – Eurostat) and United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) obligations.

Face to face interviews were conducted at a variety of border-crossing points (road, airport, port and railway) with 1096 international visitors leaving Georgia between August 26 and September 5, 2011.
