This study examines the effect of tourism arrival (TOR) on carbon dioxide emissions from the transportation sector (TCO2). The panel methodology techniques were utilized to analyse the data which included statistics from 48 top international tourism destinations. The results in general show that TORs have a significant impact on the TCO2 in all the selected countries with the exception of the European countries. The insignificant impact of TOR on TCO2 in the European countries is due to the strict environmental regulations. Therefore, implementation of regulations similar to that of the European countries is recommended for the other countries to limit the pollution from the transportation sector that is caused by international TOR.
