The travel association is calling on the Conservatives and DUP to implement a strong sector deal and visa reforms.
UKinbound conducted a survey in May where 75% of respondents said implementing a strong sector deal and improving the visa process for key markets were their top priorities.
UKinbound suggested that the government addressed the following points:
An immigration system flexible to business needs – residency rights for EU workers
Continued access to the Open Skies Agreement
Visa-free travel between the UK and the EU
A strong narrative promoting the UK as a welcoming destination
Deirdre Wells OBE, chief executive officer, said: “The general election result clearly shows that the electorate is against a hard Brexit, and so is the UK inbound tourism industry.
“Our members are calling for a continued strong relationship with the EU and the implementation of a sector deal that addresses issues such as the customs union, Open Skies Agreement and residency rights for EU workers.”
She added: “For inbound tourism to prosper long-term we need the Conservatives and DUP to champion our industry.”
