New Zealand had a seasonally adjusted net gain (more arrivals than departures) of 2100 migrants in August 2013, Statistics New Zealand said.
The last time net migration was this high was in October 2009 (2,100).
The latest monthly figures suggest net migration is currently running at an annual inflow of about 25,000 people.
The seasonally adjusted net loss of 1100 migrants to Australia in August 2013 was the smallest net loss since November 2009 (also 1,100). Net losses to Australia have fallen consistently since December 2012 (3,300), mainly due to fewer New Zealand citizens moving to Australia.
