.  This report shows that a visa facilitation policy within the G20 countries could by 2015:

 

-            Increase the number of international tourist arrivals by as much as 112 million.

 

-            Generate an additional income of as much as 206 billion US dollars.

 

-            Create as much as 5.1 million additional total jobs (direct, indirect and induced).
