Arabs in Greece (Greek: Άραβες στην Ελλάδα, Arabic: العرب في اليونان) are the people from Arab countries, particularly Lebanon, Syria, the Palestinian Territories, Iraq, Jordan and also small groups from Egypt, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Libya and Sudan, who emigrated from their native nations and currently reside in Greece. Greece has a significant Arab population of about 250,000 people. There about 60,000 Egyptians, 60,000 Libyans, 40,000 Iraqis and around 30,000 Lebanese. There are also many Arabs from Syria, Palestine, Jordan, Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia. The majority tend to live in Athens, however they can be found in all the parts of the country.
In addition, Greece has people from Arab countries, who have the status of refugees (e.g. refugees of the Syrian civil war) or illegal immigrants (Algerians of mainly Berber descent and usually mistakenly called Arabs) trying to immigrate to Western Europe.
