Data from the Icelandic Tourist Board. Passengers who go through security at Keflavík Airport, including foreigners residing in Iceland, foreign labor leaving the country and transit passengers who go through security. Statistics Iceland uses passenger count from Icelandic Tourist Board to calculate an approximation of tourists coming through Keflavik airport. Deducted from the passenger count is an approximation of self-connect passengers, departures of foreign citizens with legal address in Iceland and short-term workers. Self-connect passengers are approximated from a self-connect study performed on behalf of ISAVIA in 2017 and 2018. The number of foreign citizens with legal address in Iceland at the end of 2018 was 44 thousand, and has close to doubled from the year 2013. Departure rate per year for this group is estimated by Statistics Iceland to equal the departure rate for Icelandic citizens from Keflavik airport.Departures of short-term workers are approximated using STAÐGREIÐSLUSKRÁ, where individuals that have neither a citizenship nor legal address in Iceland but receive salary payments are counted. The average stay in Iceland is approximated for these individuals by counting number of months each individual received salary payments during that specific year.
