  • PREFACE

    The Tourism Statistics Annual report is one of Statistics Botswanas annual publications. The purpose of this report is to provide up to date statistics to policy makers and all other stakeholders in the development and management of the Tourism Sector in Botswana.

    The information contained in this publication is compiled from completed immigration arrival/departure forms. Travelers entering and leaving the country are required to complete arrival/departure forms at all gazetted points of entry/departure. This covers all land borders as well as airports.

    The report gives arrivals and departures statistics during 2014 and follows the 2013 report released in June 2015. Due to technical challenges, the 2011 report will never be released and the series of Tourism Statistics Annual Reports as a result has no data for that year.

    Users who require more information can contact the Directorate of Stakeholder Relations at 3671300. All Statistics Botswana outputs/publications are available on the website at www.cso.gov.bw and at the Statistics Botswana Library (Head-Office, Gaborone).

    We sincerely thank all stakeholders involved in the formulation of this report, particularly the Department of Immigration and Citizenship for their continued support and feedback, as we strive to better serve Batswana and all other important users of our services.

    1.0 Introduction

    The Tourism statistics report is an annual publication that depicts the statistics of non-citizens including temporary residents entering and leaving the country. The common terms used for these are arrivals and departures. The comprehensive statistics compiled in this report include arrivals by country of residence, nationality, purpose of entry, mode of travel used, point of entry and exit as well as age groupings and sex. The information contained in this report is derived from the Department of Immigration and Citizenship arrival/departure forms, which are completed by non-citizens at points of entry and exit.

    The Department of Immigration and Citizenship has automated the busiest border posts which handle high volumes of traffic and is therefore able to provide Statistics Botswana with electronic data. These borders account for over 90 percent of all travelers inbound and outbound.

    Forms from the manual borders are captured by Statistics Botswana and merged with those from the automated borders before analysis is done. Botswana citizens are exempted from completing the immigration entry/departure forms. As a result, figures on arrivals and departures contained in this publication cover only non-citizens, both visitors and temporary residents of Botswana. However, with the increasing demand for statistics on outbound travelers, particularly information on citizens, it will be necessary to collect and avail data on citizens as well in future.
