Key statistics

Overseas arrivals and departures statistics are international travel movements of persons arriving in, and departing from Australia with a focus on short term trips (less than 1 year). It is the number of international border crossings rather than the number of people.

For all Short-term Visitor Arrivals (STVA) and Short-term Resident Returns (STRR) series, the trend estimates have been suspended from February 2020 and the seasonally adjusted estimates have been suspended from April 2020 due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on international travel. For more information, see the end of the Data Quality Issues Appendix under the Explanatory Notes tab.

July 2020 original estimates for short-term trips:

  • Overseas visitor arrivals to Australia decreased 34.6% since the previous month to 3,530 trips
  • Australian resident returns from overseas decreased 34.7% since the previous month to 10,280 trips.

Note: Large percentage changes can be observed due to monthly fluctuations of small numbers
