Tourism in New Zealand is experiencing strong growth. Tourist arrivals are increasing rapidly; regularly hitting record numbers, and fuelling high demand for accommodation and leisure services. Indeed, in some, particularly popular tourist destinations, resources are being so stretched that towns are experiencing water shortages and overcrowded roads. This growth in inbound tourism is, however, set to continue throughout the forecast period and requires strong investment in both travel infrastructure and the management of natural resources. Despite a strong presence from some of the major international hotel chains, there is significant opportunity for development in the mid-range sector and a number of domestic and international companies have major projects in the pipeline.

Key Updates And Forecasts

- From the beginning of 2016, a border tax has come into force for all inbound tourists to New Zealand. This tax has been imposed by the government as tourism booms to account for the growing costs of border control. Although only a minimal amount, many experts feel the tax could be extremely negative for the lucrative tourism sector, discouraging as many as 35,000 tourists from visiting the country this year alone. It has been argued that other options should be explored to cover the border control expenses. The introduction of this tax has slightly lowered our forecast for inbound tourism numbers, from 3.9mn in 2020 to 3.7mn.
