All the pilgrim numbers from Santiago for the first 6 months of 2014

Hola

Greetings from the Pilgrims Office where the new Office (above) is working like a treat. The Amigos are there too giving a warm welcome to all who arrive.

Numbers are starting to increase and we have been a little concerned about waiting times but more staff have been engaged and a new office where organised groups are being received has been opened.

Here are the numbers for the year so far:

June 2014

33008 pilgrims registered at the Pilgrims’ Office during the month of June 2014.
This compares to 29364 pilgrims who arrived in June 2013.
This is an increase of 12.5%

The Year to Date

82734 pilgrims registered at the Pilgrims’ Office in the period 1 January to 30 June 2014
75530 pilgrims registered in the same period last year.
This is an overall increase of 9.5%

How are the English speaking countries doing?

The number of American pilgrims rose by 43% to over 10,000 last year. Since then numbers have continued to rise. By end May the number of American pilgrims had risen by 6.6% in the year. By end June the rate of increase has risen to 9.5%.
With smaller numbers but a bigger increase 30% more Australian pilgrims have arrived so far this year compared to last. Obviously the activities of the fairly recently formed Australian Association are having an effect.
