Spaniards in France are citizens of ethnic-Spanish descent. They may be French citizens or non-citizen immigrants.

Spanish immigration to France began from ancient times up to the present time and the French Republic is the second largest Spanish community outside Spain. The Spanish arrived mainly attracted by the job and new lifestyles, as well due to conflicts and armed movements in Spain which prompted the Spanish to emigrate to France.[2] Of these, according to the census of 2010 in Spain, 183,277 reside in the French Republic.[3]
