New figures show the number of people coming to New Zealand is increasing.

Statistics New Zealand says more than 20,000 extra visitors spent time in the country during July, compared with the same month last year.

The rise was due mainly to a 21% increase in holiday arrivals, from Australia, China and the United States.

As well, visitor arrivals numbered 237,900 last month, setting a new July record.
