Beninese people in France consist of migrants from Benin and their descendants living and working in France.

History[edit]

The first Beninese immigrants in France arrived in the 70s and the 80s. They came mostly from urban areas.[1] Today, the population has become more and more numerous, but a little less than their neighbors from Togo.
