The Ministry of Overseas France (French: "Ministère des Outre-mers") is a ministry in the Government of France, responsible for overseeing the Overseas departments and territories of France (such as the départements d'outre-mer and collectivités d'outre-mer). It was separated from the Ministry of the Navy in January 1893, and by a decree of 26 January 1946 its name was changed from the Ministry of the Colonies (ministère des Colonies) to the current Ministry of Overseas France (ministère de la France d'Outre-mer).

The minister position is currently held by George Pau-Langevin.
