Tourism in Sarawak is an expanding industry and one of the main contributors in economic development. A survey of international tourism demand in Sarawak is undertaken to identify its potential and future prospects. The main objective of this study is to determine factors that influence the foreign visitors' arrival to Sarawak. In addition, it aims to evaluate the impact of the Visit Malaysia Year Program (VMY), which was launched in 11990 and 1994 on tourist arrival to Sarawak. / The demand analysis is divided into three continents (Asean, Asia & Pacific, and American & Europe) comprising eleven countries. The time series data (1980 to 1997) have been analyzed by using the Ordinary Least Square (OLS) Method. The arrival of international tourists for each continent is a function of real income index and exchange rate index for each country respectively, time trend and two dummy variables as a proxy to Visit Malaysia Year Program for 1990 and 1994. The results indicate variability of effects from one continent to another as well as from one country to another. For most of the Asean's countries, the real income index and exchange rate index is the prime factors. While Asia and Pacific's country are influenced by the exchange rate index, time trend and VMY1990, and the American and Europe's country are influenced by exchange rate index and time trend.
