    PREFACE

    This report is a revised version of the report that was released on the 26th of September 2018. The revision is on Table1, Appendices 1-11 (arrivals) and Appendices 16-19 (departures). The revised figures are for the United States, Barbados and United States Minor Outlying States. The revision was necessitated by the need to correct erroneous recording of some travellers from the USA, having been recorded as being from Barbados and US Minor Outlying States.

    This tourism annual report provides the latest statistics on both visitors and non-visitors during 2016 and follows the 2015 report released in December 2016.

    The information contained in this publication is compiled from completed immigration embarkation 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 shows that during 2016, total arrivals declined by 4.0 percent while tourists recorded an increase of 3.0 percent. Tourists accounted for 71.3 percent of total arrivals. Most tourists were in the age-group 30-34 years, accounting for 15.6 percent of total tourist arrivals during the year. This age-group also accounted for most of total arrivals at 15.4 percent.

    Zimbabwe nationals accounted for 36.4 percent of inbound travellers followed by South Africa with 31.6 percent. Ramokgwebana Border post recorded the highest volume of arrivals at 19.8 percent, followed by Tlokweng Border Post with 12.0 percent of total inbound travellers. December registered the highest volume of arrivals at 10.8 percent, while February recorded the least at 6.4 percent.

    Departures decreased by 12.8 percent from 2, 491, 386 recorded during 2015.

    Users who require more information can contact the Directorate of Stakeholder Relations on 3671300. All Statistics Botswana outputs/publications are available on the website at www.statsbots.org.bw and at the Statistics Botswana Information Resource Centre (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 users of our services.
