The number of tourist arrivals for July has increased by 12.2% compared to the same month last year.
The Department of Tourism says 822, 416 tourists were recorded in July.
Southern African Tourism Services Association (SATSA) CEO, David Frost, a number of overseas arrivals has increased by 9% in the past seven months.
Frost says there are still minor challenges.
He says Home Affairs issued an announcement saying that the people travelling from countries who don't have visas should bring unabridged birth certificates. This will have a negative effect on tourism.
