US national tourist board Brand USA has released results of its February 2017 survey of 2017 travel intentions of travelers from 11 countries in the context of the US political climate following the election of President Donald Trump.


  • Compared with results of a similar survey taken in December 2016, travelers from 10 countries said they were less likely to visit the USA in 2017.
  • Travel intentions of Mexican respondents showed the greatest drop in likelihood.
  • Travel intentions of respondents from Canada, Germany, Australia, the UK and France were down moderately from December.
  • Travel intentions of respondents from India, Japan, Brazil and South Korea were down slightly.
  • Chinese respondents indicated greater likelihood of visiting the USA in 2017.

Despite concerns raised by the survey data, preliminary stats on 2017 airline bookings to the USA show continued growth.
