Note: Preliminary IVS Results

The International Visitor Survey (IVS) results for the March quarter 2018 are preliminary and do not include any data relating to purpose of visit.

This is because the quality of the main purpose of visit component of the passenger data supplied to Tourism Research Australia (TRA) by the Department of Home Affairs has been identified as a concern. There are no issues with the IVS survey collection methodology.

The Australian Government is working to resolve these issues and it is likely that a back cast of TRA data will be required. TRA will release revised estimates once a solution has been implemented.
