A spokesman for the World Tourism Organization, based in Madrid, said that most of the 159 member states of the organization supported this step, which was taken during the extraordinary meeting of the General Assembly.
Russia's suspension, which requires a two-thirds majority approval, was proposed by 22 member states including Spain, Japan, Poland and France in March 2022.
An agency spokesman did not say exactly how many members supported the proposal.
Russia expected to suspend its membership and announced at the beginning of the meeting its withdrawal from the organization and its representative left before the vote, according to one of the attendees.
"The message is clear," Secretary-General Zurab Pulikashvili wrote on Twitter after the vote. Actions will always have consequences.
Peace is a basic human right. Guaranteed for all. Without exception".
Pololikashvili previously served as Georgia's Minister of Economic Development.
The decision was welcomed by Spanish Tourism Minister Maria Reyes Maroto, who chaired the General Assembly.
"The military attack carried out by Russian President Vladimir Putin violated the founding principles of the United Nations," she said.
The World Tourism Organization, which was founded in 1976 and provides technical support for the promotion of tourism, has warned that the conflict in Ukraine will impede the uneven recovery of the global tourism sector from the impact of the Corona pandemic.
She said the disruption of outbound travel from Russia and Ukraine alone could cause up to $14 billion in losses in tourism revenue this year, with a tangible impact on islands and coastal destinations.
The UN General Assembly voted earlier this month to suspend Russia from the UN Human Rights Council over its invasion of Ukraine, prompting Moscow to announce its withdrawal from the council.
