Data calculation/treatment

The statistics in this release relate to the number of passenger movements to New Zealand, rather than to the number of people – that is, the multiple movements of individual people during a given reference period are each counted separately.

Limitations of the data

Data is derived from a sample of records and hence may contain sample error. Caution should be used when using data with low cell values.

Exclusions

'Transit' passengers do not complete border clearance – regardless of whether they travel by air or by sea – so are not included in these statistics. About three-quarters of cruise ship passengers visiting New Zealand are 'transit' passengers.
