International Visitor Arrivals to New Zealand

International Visitor Arrivals to New Zealand (IVA) is a monthly report produced by Statistics New Zealand and sponsored by Tourism New Zealand. It is released two working days after the International Travel and Migration information release.

The report contains detailed tables and graphs of monthly and annual data, showing the number and characteristics of visitor arrivals. Visitor arrivals are defined as overseas residents arriving in New Zealand for a stay of less than 12 months. Most of the data is presented by country, for a selection of major source countries of visitors to New Zealand including:

  • Australia
  • People’s Republic of China
  • Japan
  • Republic of Korea
  • Singapore
  • Hong Kong (Special Administrative Region)
  • Thailand
  • India
  • United Kingdom
  • Germany
  • United States of America
  • Canada.

Visitor arrival data comes from Statistics NZ's International Travel and Migration dataset. This dataset is derived from information contained in electronic records supplied by the New Zealand Customs Service, as well as from arrival and departure cards completed by passengers.
