In 2023, New York City witnessed an impressive overall recovery of 93 percent, welcoming a total of 61.8M travellers. This trajectory positions the city on course to host an estimated 64.5M visitors in the current year, aligning closely with pre-pandemic visitation levels.

The recent delegation visit to India, facilitated in partnership with Turkish Airlines, formed part of their annual sales mission held from January 29 to February 3 across Mumbai, Ahmedabad, and Delhi.

This mission was dedicated to strengthening ties with the Indian travel industry and promoting New York City as a premier travel destination.

Moreover, in 2023, the United States processed a record-breaking 1.4M Indian visas, leading to a significant reduction in visitor visa appointment wait times.

With demand surging across all visa categories and a remarkable 60 percent increase compared to the previous year, Indians now constitute one-tenth of all foreign applications for US visas.

This surge underscores the growing popularity of the United States as a preferred destination among Indian travellers.
