Abstract
This study aims to highlight the implications and effects of the Corona pandemic (Covid-19) on the performance of travel and tourism agencies globally and nationally; as well as the most-important actions and measures taken to reduce the spread of the pandemic. Besides, it sought to present the policies adopted by some countries in order to deal with the crisis in the field of tourism. The two researchers relied on the deductive approach, with its descriptive and analytical methods, in order to collect information about the emerging corona virus, and its impact on the performance of travel and tourism agencies globally and nationally. The results showed that the Corona pandemic has had a significant negative impact on the economies of all countries. It is noteworthy that tourism is among the most affected sectors, as many tourism agencies are threatened by bankruptcy, and many of them dismissed large numbers of employees. This also applies to various facilities related to tourism services (airlines, hotels, restaurants, etc...) considering the fact that the recovery period will be long due to the repeated borders closure and the recurrence of quarantine in some areas. This situation requires urgent government intervention to support travel and tourism agencies and tourism activities, in addition to the establishment of special crisis management offices for each tourist agency and supporting virtual tourism to revive the activity of agencies.
