Immigration and tourism
This section provides information, resources and guidance on our functions which support immigration and tourism.
New Zealand’s immigration system needs to function well within wider labour market, economic, community and security contexts to enhance New Zealanders’ well-being.
We advise the government on how to improve productivity and growth across the tourism sector. We also collect, analyse and publish local and international tourism data. We listen to, and provide support to the sector to help them navigate through difficult times, including the COVID-19 pandemic.
