The Impact of Post 9/11 Travel Rules

April 9, 2013

Travel and leisure, including visitors from foreign countries, is a primary driver of economic activity in the District of Columbia. According the study below from the U.S. Travel Association, millions of foreigners are avoiding visits to the United States due to the onerous restrictions and conditions levied on travelers after 9/11. Considering that many, if not most, of these visitors will spend at least some time in the District, it is in our interest to ensure that immigration reform includes revisions to the process for entering the country for travel and leisure. Reform of these rules could mean many millions of travel and tourism dollars for the District and additional tax receipts for the District government.
