Travel statistics, International travels


This paper analyses statistics on international travels for 1982 based on information derived from the Nigerian

Exchange Control TM (arrival) forms. The forms are designed to enable travellers coming into the country from abroad to declare their holdings of foreign currency, precious stones, jewellery and works of art. Other pieces of information obtainable through these forms include the number of visitors coming into the country, their nationality and purpose of visit. The forms are collected on daily basis by the Customs Officials at the country's border posts and international airports and are brought monthly to the Central Bank where they are processed and analysed.
