Notes on the National Visitor Survey (NVS) and International Visitor Survey (IVS) data

Tourism Research Australia (TRA) updated the NVS survey methodology with the introduction of 100% mobile phone interviewing from 2019. International visitor statistics are sourced from TRA IVS.  Recent changes to overseas arrivals data has led TRA to revise IVS estimates in the December 2018 data release. The revisions focus on purpose-of-visit estimates, with minimal change to visitor, nights and spend estimates. Care should be taken when comparing current NVS and IVS data with previously published data.
