TORONTO — The Tourism Authority of Thailand (Canada) has launched a new Tourist Visa that eligible Canadians can apply for, effective immediately.

  • Completed visa application form
  • 1 passport size photo (2×2 or bigger) taken within the last 6 months
  • A copy of the applicant’s bank account statement indicating a minimum balance of 500,000 THB (equivalent to approximately Can$23,000)
  • For non-Canadian citizens, a copy of permanent resident card or a copy of valid Canadian visa with a letter stating proof of employment or letter stating proof of full-time student status
  • A copy of an e-ticket indicating confirmation of airline booking and departure and return dates
  • Visa fee: $50 Single entry (money order only in Canadian funds payable to “Royal Thai Embassy”)
