This is a republication of the Statistical Bulletin published on 10th July 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:

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.

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.
