Arabs in Austria (Arabic: عرب النمسا‎) are Austrians of Arab ethnic, particularly Lebanon, Syria, Palestinian, Iraq, Jordan and also small groups from Egypt, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Libya, Yemen and Sudan, who emigrated from their native nations and currently reside in Austria. Most Arab Austrians are of Iraqis and Lebanese or Syrian origin, as a result of the fact that they were the first Arabs to arrive in Austria.

In addition, Austria has people from Arab countries, who have the status of refugees (Refugees of the Syrian civil war) or illegal immigrants (Algerians of mainly Berber descent and usually mistakenly called Arabs) trying to immigrate to Western Europe.
