Overseas Arrivals and Departures (OAD)

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) publishes monthly Overseas Arrivals and Departures information of short-term (under 12 months duration) international visitors to Australia, regardless of age. Overseas arrival data relate to the State of intended stay in Australia while overseas Departure data relate to the State where visitors spent the most time in Australia.

Please note: 
The ABS rebuilt its OAD data system to improve data quality. To preserve the time series, the ABS revised OAD data back from July 2004 onwards. This change impacted the OAD and the International Visitor Survey time series as international visitor estimates are benchmarked on the OAD data.
January 2014 OAD results are the first to be based on the revised OAD methodology.
