Arabs in the Republic of Macedonia (Macedonian: Арапи во Република Македонија) are the people from Arab countries, particularly Lebanon, Syria, the Palestinian Territories, Iraq, Jordan and also small groups from Egypt, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Libya and Sudan, who emigrated from their native nations and currently reside in Macedonia. Most Arab Macedonians are of Lebanese or Syrian origin, as a result of the fact that they were the first Arabs to arrive in Macedonia.

In addition, Macedonia has people from Arab countries, who have the status of refugees (Refugees of the Syrian civil war and Iraqi refugees) or illegal immigrants (Algerians of mainly Berber descent and usually mistakenly called Arabs) trying to immigrate to Western Europe.[2][3][4]
