3 out of 5 migrants arrive on temporary visas

In 2019, 60 percent of migrant arrivals to New Zealand were on a work, visitor, or student visa, Stats NZ said today.

Recent trends in arrivals have been driven by migrants on temporary visas, which include work, visitor, and student visa types.

“Annual migrant arrivals on temporary visas are about 26,000 higher than in early 2014,” population indicators manager Tehseen Islam said.

“Since then, migrant arrivals on temporary visas have remained higher than the numbers arriving on residence visas or as New Zealand or Australian citizens.”

Some migrants who arrive on temporary visas do extend their visa, transition to other visa types, or gain permanent residency.

New Zealand citizens remain the largest migrant arrival group, currently accounting for 25 percent of migrant arrivals. Australian citizens accounted for another 5 percent of migrant arrivals.

About 9 percent of migrants arrived on a residence visa in 2019. This is half the proportion that arrived on a residence visa in the mid-2000s.

Student visa arrival numbers reached about 30,000 a year in 2016, falling to less than 25,000 a year more recently.

The number of migrants arriving on work visas more than doubled between 2010 and 2019.

Recent New Zealand migration numbers

Annual net migration was provisionally estimated at 47,300 (± 800) in the year ended June 2019 compared with 48,600 in the previous year.

Migrant arrivals were down by 3,300 (2 percent) to 137,700 (±700) compared to the year ended June 2018. Migrant departures were down by 2,000 (2 percent) to 90,400 (±500) for the same period.

Migration estimates for the year ended June 2019 are subject to smaller month-to-month revisions than estimates for more recent periods. We can define travellers as non-migrants or migrants with more certainty 5-6 months after a reference period according to the 12/16 month-rule.

Citizenship

Migrant arrivals and departures include the flows of New Zealand citizens as well as the flows of non-New Zealand citizens as both affect the population living in New Zealand.

There were 7,500 more departures than arrivals of New Zealand citizens in the year ended June 2019. The net outflow increased 1,200 compared to the previous year.

In the same period, the net gain of migrants of non-New Zealand citizenship was 54,800. This was a decrease of 200 on the previous year.

Year ended December 2019 – provisional migration estimates

Some users of migration data may want to look at the most recent provisional estimates. These give a timelier indication of migration levels, although have higher uncertainty and are therefore subject to larger revisions than provisional estimates for earlier periods.

Provisional estimates for the year ended December 2019 were:

  • migrant arrivals – 139,800 (± 1,700)
  • migrant departures – 96,100 (± 1,500)
  • net migration gain – 43,800 (± 2,100).

Year ended August 2018 migration now final

Migration estimates for the year ended August 2018 have now been finalised with a net migration of 48,600.

New series on migrant departures to Australia

In early March we will publish a new Infoshare series: Estimated migrant arrivals to Australia by country of last permanent residence (CLPR), citizenship, and birthplace. The new quarterly series utilises data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics to fill a statistical gap on where migrants departing New Zealand are going, caused by the removal of the departure card in November 2018. A news story will accompany the first release of this data.

Text alternative for Estimated migration (mean estimate), year ended June 2019

Diagram shows estimates for migrant arrivals, migrant departures, and net migration, for the year ended June 2019. Arrivals of non-New Zealand citizens were 103,200 (± 500) and departures were 48,300 (± 300), making a net migration gain of 54,800 (± 600) non-New Zealand citizens. Arrivals of New Zealand citizens were 34,500 (± 300) and departures were 42,000 (± 300), making a net migration loss of 7,500 (± 400) New Zealand citizens. Result is a total net migration gain of 47,300 (± 800). Note: The provisional estimates have 95 percent confidence intervals (±) alongside them – the wider the interval, the greater the uncertainty about the estimate. However, these intervals reflect the model uncertainty, not the extent of future revisions to provisional data.
