The Legislative District of Siquijor is the current representation of the province of Siquijor in the Philippine House of Representatives.

From 1907 the sub-province Siquijor was represented as part of the second district of Negros Oriental. Negros Oriental and the sub-province of Siquijor were represented in the Interim Batasang Pambansa as part of Region VII from 1978 to 1984.

Siquijor's first representative was elected in 1984, after it was established as a regular province on September 17, 1971 through Republic Act No. 6398. The province elected one representative to the Regular Batasang Pambansa from 1984 to 1986. Siquijor retained its lone district under the new Constitution which took effect on February 7, 1987, and elected its member to the restored House of Representatives starting that same year.
