Please note that the International Visitor Survey (IVS) results for the Year Ending June 2018 are preliminary and do not include any data relating to purpose of visit. This is because there are concerns with the quality of the passenger data, supplied to TRA by the Department of Home Affairs, that is used to benchmark the IVS. Work is currently in progress to resolve these issues and it is likely that a back cast of IVS data will be required. TRA will release revised estimates once a solution has been implemented.

Next release: 
International Fast Facts for Year Ending September 2018 is due for release  in December 2019. 

Domestic Fast Facts for Year Ending September 2018 is due for release  in January 2019.
