Visitor arrivals in September 2000 were lower than in September 1999, possibly due to the Sydney Olympic Games. In September 2001, there were more visitors from Australia (up 6,200), Korea (up 3,200), China (up 2,500) and the United Kingdom (up 1,200) compared with September 2000.

Four-fifths of this increase came from Australia (up 74,500), Asia (up 58,400) and Europe (up 37,200). Within Europe and Asia there were notable contributions from the United Kingdom (up 27,300), Korea (up 19,900), China (up 19,000) and Japan (up 14,800).

In September 2001, seasonally adjusted visitor arrivals fell 6 per cent, compared with August 2001.

Short-term departures by New Zealand residents in the month of September 2001 totalled 136,700, up 8,700 or 7 per cent on September 2000. On a seasonally adjusted basis this series increased 1 per cent between August and September 2001. For the year ended September 2001, there were 1.313 million short-term departures by New Zealand residents, 75,000 or 6 per cent more than the previous year. There were more departures to Australia (up 29,900), Fiji (up 17,200) and China (up 4,300), but fewer departures to the United Kingdom (down 9,300) and the United States (down 6,100).

In the month of September 2001, permanent and long-term (PLT) arrivals exceeded departures by 3,500, compared with a net gain of 800 in September 2000. The seasonally adjusted series recorded a net inflow of 2,300 in September 2001.

For the year ended September 2001, there was a net outflow of 1,700 PLT migrants. This was 7,800 fewer than the net outflow of 9,500 in the previous year.
