UNWTOunwWith NRIs among international tourists, India has leaped 16 places in the revised UNWTO rankings to get the 24th place for 2014 and 2015. As per global ranking, earlier, it was ranked 41st and 40th in 2014 and 2015, respectively.


UNWTO is the United Nation’s agency managing promotion of responsible, sustainable and universally accessible tourism and its barometer ranks countries in terms of their ITAs – including both foreign tourist arrivals as well as non-resident arrivals.


So far, only the figures of foreign tourist arrivals (FTAs) were compiled in India. However, now India has also started compiling the data arrivals of Non-Resident Indians (NRIs).


India has taken huge strides in the tourism sector in the last year with its rank in the Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Index (TTCI), 2017 had also shown a 12 places jump from 2015.
