Arrivals Statistics

Statistics South Africa, in collaboration with the Department of Home Affairs, release monthly arrivals Tourism and Migration statistics as collected at South Africa’s border posts (land, sea and air). These are aggregated as raw data through Statistics South Africa and presented without much insight, usually with a few months lag time. These reports are useful for raw data from South Africa’s source markets and give a good idea of South Africa’s core markets as a travel destination.
