Sri Lanka Anticipates a Tourism Boom in 2024, Targeting 2.3 Million Visitors with Extended Visa Exemption for Indian Travelers

Sri Lanka is gearing up for a remarkable surge in tourism in 2024, with ambitious plans set to attract 2.3 million tourists. Central to this growth is the extension of visa exemption for Indian travelers beyond March, a strategic move recognizing India’s pivotal role as Sri Lanka’s primary tourism market.

The Sri Lankan Minister of Tourism highlighted this pivotal development at OTM 2024, emphasizing the indispensable role played by Indian tourists in steering Sri Lanka’s tourism recovery. The nation is actively seeking to draw more visitors, especially those inclined towards last-minute trips and those averse to the cumbersome visa application process.

Sri Lanka has garnered recognition as a preferred destination for spontaneous trips among Indians, ranking 4th in Google Trends reports for the top 10 most searched travel destinations by Indians. FOX News has also recently acknowledged it among the top 13 affordable destinations.
