This study investigates the issue of sustainability in the tourism sector, defining both as the Tourism National Plans studied from 2003 to 2016. Thus it was first used for exploratory research by proposing to observe books, articles and relevant materials addressing issues related to sustainability and jointly tourism, sometimes arranged by organizations such as the World Health Organization-WHO, United Environment Programme-UNEP and WWF Mediterranean. In the sequence, it was held a documentary research to individually analyze the perspective of sustainability in the Tourism National Plan of 2003-2007, 2007-2010 and 2013-2016. On the other hand, the results show that even before the development of these policies, it is observed the absence of the consolidation of these proposed actions in the national tourism sector in this way it is understood that these proposals serve to supply political desires and supporters. From the perspective of sustainability by these public policies, the elaborate planning verified did not represent Brazil’s actions of environmental preservation and improvement of social indicators that are directly related to tourism.
