Sri Lanka has actively participated in all major Tourism related events. Sri Lanka was the host country of the Bel-Asia tourism fair in February 2010, and annually participated in some of the highly reputed tourism fairs & road shows specialized in both Business to Business (B2B) & Business to Client (B2C), such as Salon des Vacances, Bel- Asia, BT-Expo, Bruges Travel Expo and Jetair Road Show. The Mission is also promoting Sri Lanka as a MICE tourism destination and has been instrumental in arranging visits of Belgian travel television crews and travel journalists to Sri Lanka. In 2009, a television crew from the ‘één TV’ channel, in 2010 a group of 14 journalists and in 2011 two travel journalists visited Sri Lanka from Belgium for promotional purposes

Belgian tourist arrivals in Sri Lanka which increased from 2,617 in 2009, to 5,398 in 2010, recorded 10,122 in 2011, surpassing the previous recorded highest number of Belgians who visited Sri Lanka, which was 6,333 in 2006. This also reflected a growth of 87.5% over 2010, which is the highest percentage growth of tourist arrivals from any country to Sri Lanka in 2011.

Many Belgian tour operators have re-introduced Sri Lanka in their tour catalogues since 2011. Also Brussels & Colombo is now connected seven days a week through a number of airlines - Ethihad, Qatar, Jet Airways besides Sri Lankan Airlines through easy connections through London, Paris and Frankfurt. This has given Belgian tourists greater travel options to visit Sri Lanka.


There has been a considerable increase in Luxembourg tourists visiting Sri Lanka in the recent past and it is considered as a potential tourist generating market. The Embassy is promoting Sri Lanka as a tourist destination in corporation with Luxembourg travel agents.
