Arabs in Sweden are Swedish citizens or residents of Arab ethnic, cultural and linguistic heritage or identity from Arab countries, who emigrated from their native nations and currently reside in Sweden. It is worth mentioning that many of them might not actually be ethnically Arab but due to the general confusion between the meaning of Arab and other groups coming from the same area (such as the case of Kurds, Berbers, Turkmen, Assyrians, Roma etc.) the exact number of the actual Arab population in the Sweden may be greatly biased.

Migration history[edit]

Many of the Arabs in Sweden are refugees from Syria, Iraq, Palestine, Lebanon, Morocco, Algeria, Egypt and Tunisia.
