Tourism is a significant economic activity for developing
any national economy and the world economy as well. Revenues
generated through tourism services affect GDP and directly stimulate economic growth. The revenues are important for the national economies, i.e. the foreign exchange inflow, generated through tourist services export. However, many factors directly impact on the volume of foreign tourist arrivals, and thus directly affect both foreign exchange inflows and GDP. Government measures taken for various
reasons that have a straight impact on the movement of people significantly reduce tourist travels. It can cause numerous and robust adverse effects on the national economy. The health crisis caused by the pandemic COVID – 19 has led to restrictive governmental measures that had a negative impact on tourist travels, and thus on the revenues generated from the export of tourist services. The paper
aims to measure the effect of the COVID - 19 crises on the income generated by the foreign tourists’ arrivals in Ohrid, as a case study destination in Macedonia. The research results will show the losses this economic sector has suffered from the "lockdown" caused by the pandemic.
