This is a republication of the Statistical Bulletin published on 10 April 2014, and contains corrections to the expenditure estimates


On 18 November 2014 ONS announced errors had been identified in the expenditure estimates for UK residents visits abroad and overseas residents' visits to the UK within the Overseas Travel and Tourism release. The errors in the expenditure estimates affected data between January 2014 and September 2014 and because the data feeds into the imports and exports of service also affected the UK Trade releases over the same period. The ONS statement regarding this error can be found here: http://www.ons.gov.uk/ons/media-centre/statements/correction-to-overseas-travel-and-tourism-expenditure-data/index.html

These errors have been corrected in the republished September 2014 monthly bulletin, and consistent with the Authority's letter of 14 November 2014, Overseas Travel and Tourism expenditure estimates are in the process of being re-assessed for National Statistics status, following an internal review. http://www.statisticsauthority.gov.uk/reports---correspondence/correspondence/letter-from-sir-andrew-dilnot-to-john-pullinger-141114.pdf

Presents monthly results on the number of overseas visitors to the UK, UK residents visits abroad, earnings from overseas visits, expenditure of UK residents going abroad.

The Overseas Travel and Tourism monthly and quarterly bulletins are being updated to provide additional information about the revisions policy used to revise and finalise the estimates. As part of this improvement to the publications the titles will be changed to indicate that the estimates are provisional. The final estimates, for the Overseas Travel and Tourism data, are published in the annual Travel Trends publication. The first publications to include the additional information will be:

  • "Overseas Travel and Tourism, Provisional Results for October 2013" - published 12th December 2013

  • "Overseas Travel and Tourism, Provisional Results for Quarter 3, 2013" - published on 16th January 2014
