Lubaina Sheerazi, India Representative, Ministry of Tourism, Oman said “We have seen a positive growth last year and the increase can be credited to the fact that Oman is becoming popular as a wedding destination for Indians. From Sonam Kapoor to diamond merchants in Surat and NRI’s, several Indians are now visiting Oman for the purpose of destination weddings. This has contributed a lot to our footfalls from India. MICE tourism in Oman has also seen an increase and to attract more MICE activities this year, our efforts are aimed at increasing interactions with tour operators and corporates. Excellent airline connectivity, short-haul destination and varied experiences to offer have led to Oman becoming a popular destination in the region.”

Destinations like Manila, Boracay, Cebu, Bohol, Palawan and Davao have been aggressively promoted in recent years. In order to strengthen co-operation with our important feeder markets, several promotional activities such as roadshows, taxi branding, participation in fairs and exhibitions and FAM trips have been carried out. With the AJACSS UK visa relaxation at all international airports, the Philippines is sure to attract more Indians in the coming years.”
Alain St. Ange, Minister of Tourism and culture, Government of Seychelles said “We are thrilled with the phenomenal response from the India market in just the second year of us opening office here. I strongly believe that this achievement has been possible in such a short time because of a very good team work with Air Seychelles, the DMCs and the resorts. In spite of a limited budget, together we have been able to occupy a place in the minds of the travel trade and to an extent in the consideration list of the traveller. We are geared up and excited for 2016 and are confident that we will keep this momentum alive.”
Hanneli  Slabber, Country Manager South Africa Tourism said “The change in visitors has been seen as a more accurate reflection of real tourists. Our direct flying service, the national carrier discontinued services which also is a contributor to this change. Capacity issues at our immigration center lead to visa delays, which is now taken care of and is running smoothly. We are positive and are also seeing affirmative changes in the number of travelers to South Africa. We are definitely seeing a surge in travelers for this year and our marketing efforts are also fueling this surge. We are excited for 2016 to be one of our best years thus far.”
 
Dana Urmonas, Regional Director, Southeast Asia & India, SATC said: “The South Australian Tourism Commission recognises that India is a key growth market for us.
