Tourism has continued to play an important role in the Tanzanian economy and is among the fastest growing sectors in the country. In ensuring that information on tourism continues to be available, the multi-institutional committee which consists of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism, Bank of Tanzania, National Bureau of Statistics, Immigration Department and the Zanzibar Commission for Tourism, conducts the International Visitors’ Exit Survey annually.

The key objective of the survey is to collect up-to-date information on tourist expenditure to be used in the “Tourist Expenditure Model” for estimation of international tourism receipts, which is used for compilation of the National Accounts and Balance of Payments statistics. The survey also aims at obtaining information that is used for strategic planning, tourism promotion and macro-economic policy formulation.

The Tanzania Tourism Sector Survey Reportprovides important tourism statistics such as tourism earnings, source markets, purposes of visit and average length of stay.
