Visitor Arrivals Up 10 Per Cent

External Migration: October 2000


During the year ended October 2000, there were 1.738 million overseas visitor arrivals, an increase of 160,000 or 10 per cent on the October 1999 year.

In the month of October 2000, there were 146,610 visitor arrivals, up 13,690 or 10 per cent on October 1999. This follows a small decrease in September 2000, compared with September 1999, because of the impact of the Sydney Olympics.

Seasonally adjusted visitor arrival numbers recovered by 10 per cent between September and October 2000, following a 9 per cent fall between August and September 2000. This series has generally been increasing since March 1998.

In October 2000, New Zealand residents left on 110,110 short-term overseas trips, up 1,530 or 1 per cent on October 1999. Departures to Australia (up 900), the Cook Islands (up 470) and China (up 440) increased, but there were fewer departures to the United States (down 620) and Fiji (down 510).

In the month of October 2000, permanent and long-term arrivals exceeded departures by 370, compared with net immigration of 110 in October 1999. There was a net outflow of migrants to Australia (2,030), but net gains from the United Kingdom (570) and China (510). During the year ended October 2000 there were 63,320 permanent and long-term arrivals and 72,580 departures. This resulted in a net loss of 9,270 migrants, down 1,420 from the net loss of 10,680 in the previous year. There was a net loss to Australia (26,290), but net gains from China (4,970), South Africa (2,160), India (2,090) and Japan (1,940).
