Thai New Zealanders are New Zealanders who are of Thai ancestry or Thai-born people who live in New Zealand.

In 1961, a mere 41 people were recorded as having been born in Thailand, but this figure rose to over 6,100 in the 2006 NZ census.[1] Some 500 of these live in Wellington, and have their own temple in Karori[2]

Thai New Zealanders are usually Buddhist, or more rarely Christian.
