AUSTRALIA is back in favour with international tourists

    Tourism Australia managing director John O’Sullivan said 538,800 people arrived for a short-term visit in August.
We haven’t seen these sorts of international arrivals numbers since the days of the Sydney 2000 Olympics,” said Mr O’Sullivan.
CommSec senior analyst Craig James said the growth in Chinese tourists was nothing short of staggering. China will surpass New Zealand as our primary source of tourists in around five years time,” Mr James said.
The fastest pace in 14-years no doubt boosted by the improvement in the global economy.
Tourism and Transport Forum chief executive officer Margy Osmond welcomed the figures but said they highlighted the massive opportunity Australia was missing due to barriers such as visa requirements and taxes.
She said independent travellers from China wanting an Australia visa had to pay $130, fill out a 15-page application in English and wait 15-days for processing.
Reducing the cost and complexity of our visa system will improve Australia’s competitiveness.
