Visitor arrivals topped 3 million for the first time in the July 2015 year, Statistics New Zealand said.

New Zealand had a seasonally adjusted net gain (more arrivals than departures) of 5,700 migrants in July 2015, surpassing the previous record of 5,400 in January 2015.

The record shows that in July10,620 people migrated to New Zealand and only 4879 people left the country. The inflow has been further bolstered by a doubling of Indian students arriving in the country. Residents took more trips to Australia, the United States, Fiji, and Indonesia compared with the July 2014 year.

Students from India and China helped to drive a record net gain in migrants to New Zealand in the year to the end of July, the government statistics agency said Friday.

Of the migrant arrivals in the July year, those arriving from Australia rose 7.9 percent to 24,300, with two-thirds being New Zealand citizens, Statistics NZ said. Chinese arrivals rose 14 percent to 10,400, with half having student visas. A seasonally adjusted net gain of 200 migrants from Australia last month was the highest level since March 1991. The net migration in July reflected 5750, the highest monthly rate of inflow ever recorded. The annual total was 2.35 million, up 5 percent, and also a record.
