Tourism statistics show favorable time for New Zealand

Published on : Monday, August 21, 2017

Overload of tourists on New ZealandA strong economy and demand for skilled workers are important for bringing new people into the country, as well as significant for New Zealanders returning home.

 
Statistics New Zealand population statistics manager Peter Dolan said that most migrants arrived in the country on short-term work and student visas.

 
Dolan said, “All people in New Zealand place demands on the country’s services and infrastructure … but it is those migrants who are here for a year or more that are included in estimates and projections of the resident population, and these are the basis for long-term planning.”

 
Arrivals accounted 132,100, which was also an annual record with 59,700 departures.
The biggest increases were from the United Kingdom (up 2400) and South Africa (up 1600). The largest decrease in net migration in the July 2017 year was from India (down 3900 to 7400), due to a decrease in student migrant arrivals.

 
Of the 33,500 departures of New Zealand citizens in the July 2017, 62 percent were to Australia. A record number of tourists arrived for a break – with 3.7 million visitors over the year.

 
In July, 246,900 visitors arrived from overseas, setting a new record for the month. Almost half of the visitors came to New Zealand for holidays.
