Since the end of Sri Lanka’s civil war in 2009, the tourism sector has been on an upward trend, with increasing numbers of tourist arrivals creating a positive impact in the sector. In 2010, the number of arrivals rose by 40 per cent and in 2011 exceeded the 800,000 mark - a milestone for Sri Lankan tourism at the time. March 2012 marked a 21.3 per cent year on year increase in tourist arrivals, compared to a year earlier with 91,100 tourists visiting the country in March alone.

By 2013, the one million tourist arrivals mark had been reached and by 2016 a total of 2.05 million tourists were recorded to have arrived in the Island. This represented a growth of 14 per cent over the previous year. China, France, Germany, India and the UK continue as the top sources of arrivals. According to the long-term development plan of the Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority (SLTDA) it is expected that there will be around 4.5 tourist arrivals by 2020.
