Presents quarterly results from the International Passenger Survey. Contains data on visits to and from the UK by overseas residents and visits abroad by UK residents.
In addition to the monthly Statistical Bulletins, ONS publishes both quarterly and annual Overseas Travel and Tourism estimates.
provisional estimates for Quarter 4 are published in April each year,
and these provisional estimates are subsequently revised to produce final full-year estimates, in July (via the publication Travel Trends)
ONS has taken steps to be able to produce end of year estimates in April. As a result in 2013, ONS will:
Publish Travel Trends 2012, containing final 2012 estimates on 19 April rather than in July.
Not publish the provisional Quarter 4 estimates, originally planned for publication on 11 April.
