    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 on both visitors and non-visitors during 2015 and follows the 2014 report released in February 2016.

    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.statsbots.org.bw and at the Statistics Botswana Information Resource Center (Head-Office, Gaborone). I sincerely thank all stakeholders involved in the formulation of this report, particularly the Department of Immigration and Citizenship for the administrative data used to compile this Tourism Statistics Annual Report. I also thank all other stakeholders for their continued support as we strive to better serve Batswana and all other important users of our services.
