This survey has been conducted on a regular basis since 1980. The last data produced by the State Statistical Office

The survey conducted in 2016 provides structural data on foreign visitors (same-day visitors - excursionists, transit

has been conducted on a sample of 1628 visitors at nine border crossings, of which eight for passenger cars and one at the airports.

The processed data are presented in tables, which are included in this publication. These data, used together with
the existing monthly and yearly border crossing statistics maintained by the Ministry of Internal Affairs - Department of
Border Police, will help users to perform adequate analyses of tourism and tourism revenues.

The State Statistical Office would appreciate any suggestion for improving the statistical survey and the quality of data.
