Tourism balance of payments

The tourism balance of payments is calculated on the basis of IMF recommendations.

  • With regard to receipts, it measures the value of goods and services acquired by non-residents during their stay in Switzerland.
  • With regard to expenditure, it measures the value of goods and services acquired by Swiss residents during their stay abroad.
In 2020, the tourism balance of payments underwent a major revision with revised series up to 1995. It was carried out within the broader framework of the 2020 revision of macroeconomic statistics (National Accounts and Balance of Payments).
