Notes: Data sourced from the International Visitor Survey (IVS) produced by Tourism Research Australia. IVS data includes international short-term visitors (less than 12 months) aged 15+ years.

International education visitors captured in the IVS are defined as those that stay in Australia for less than one continuous year (as such not all international students are incorporated in this definition).

Due to survey limitations because of international border closures during the pandemic, regional-level international data is not available for estimates from June 2020 to November 2023.

Due care is taken in the production of this information. However, DJSIR accepts no responsibility for the use of this data. Figures may not add due to rounding.
