Almost 200,000 visitors arrived in New Zealand last month, a record for July.

Visitors numbered 196,900 in July, up from 183,700 in the same month last year, Statistics New Zealand figures show.

"More holiday visitors from Indonesia, Australia and China helped boost visitor arrivals to a new July record," Statistics New Zealand population statistics project manager Susan Hollows said.

"The increase from Indonesia was mainly due to visitors travelling during the Ramadan holiday period."

In the July 2014 year, visitor arrivals numbered 2.8 million, up 6 per cent from the July 2013 year.

Most tourists come from Australia, China, the United States and Britain.
