Record numbers flock to New Zealand

Record numbers of people are flocking to New Zealand.

The latest figures from Immigration New Zealand show 4.8 million passengers arrived in the country over the past year, including 2.6 million short-term visitors.

Australians made up the majority of arrivals, followed by the British, then Chinese.

Immigration New Zealand general manager Peter Elms says it's the highest number on record.

“People find New Zealand an attractive destination, and long may that continue,” he says. “We seek to encourage people to come to New Zealand, and obviously they’re having a good time.”

About 1500 people were denied permission to board flights here.
