Provisional international travel statistics

Stats NZ releases provisional international travel statistics on this webpage each week. The latest available weekly and four-weekly information, for the period ending 11 November 2018, is provided for short-term overseas visitor and New Zealand resident arrivals. Data are published for 10 main source and 10 main destination countries, as well as for world regions and totals. The four-weekly and weekly data series are provisional and may be revised.

The provisional data are released to enable the tourism industry to monitor short-term travel on a regular and timely basis. In future this release will be available on Wednesday each week, 13 working days after the reference period. It may take several weeks before we meet the indicated timetable.

Weekly international travel statistics
We have implemented a new migration processing system to offset the removal of the departure card. The results for the period ending 11 November 2018 are the first from the new approach. NZ resident arrival tables have replaced the NZ resident departure tables we previously published. 

Introducing the new CSV files
Two new CSV files are now available, as an alternative way of accessing provisional international travel data. The overseas visitor arrival and NZ resident traveller arrival CSV files provide some additional variables for the first time.

Overseas visitor arrivals 

  • additional source countries – Hong Kong (Special Administrative Region) and Malaysia
  • country of residence (12 countries and 5 world regions)
  • selected New Zealand ports
  • length of stay
  • main travel purpose
New Zealand resident arrivals 
  • additional destination country – Japan
  • main country visited (11 countries and 5 world regions)
  • selected New Zealand ports
  • length of stay
  • main travel purpose

Rounding
All passenger counts are now rounded to the nearest 10. Totals may differ due to rounding and individual figures may not sum to totals.

Background
From 5 November 2018, travellers leaving New Zealand no longer need to complete a passenger departure card (see Final call for travel departure cards). Stats NZ is developing a new processing system to use existing information (passport data, arrival card data, and integrated administrative data) to replace some of the information on the departure card. For more information see Migration Data Transformation Project.
