NOTES REGARDING OVERSEAS ARRIVALS AND DEPARTURES AND NET OVERSEAS MIGRATION (NOM) DATA

A number of releases of Overseas Arrivals and Departures, Australia (cat. no. 3401.0) have been delayed due to passenger card processing issues as announced by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) on their website (http://www.immi.gov.au/pub-res/Pages/statistics/overseas-arrivals-and-departures.aspx). Contingency processing plans are now in place to ensure the regular scheduled releases of these statistics can resume as soon as possible. This included the release of some preliminary OAD estimates for October, November and December 2014 on 3 March 2015, prior to the release of the full set of monthly statistics in May 2015. A similar release of preliminary OAD estimates for January, February and March 2015 will be released on 2 June 2015. For further information see Technical Note: Recent and Upcoming Releases or Overseas Arrivals and Departures, Australia (cat. no. 3401.0).


Temporary changes to net overseas migration modelling

September quarter NOM has been modelled using a two-year ago propensity model, to accommodate delays in passenger card processing, as announced by DIBP. For further information see paragraph 18 of the Explanatory Notes.
