Argentines in France form one of the largest immigrant groups from Hispanic America.

Argentina is considered a country of immigrants,[2] especially during the 20th century, but as a result of political, social and economic problems that hit the country in recent decades, many Argentines chose to emigrate, mainly to other countries in the Americas or countries where their parents and/or grandparents came from (mainly Spain and Italy).[3]



The ancestral origins of the Argentine nation show recent ancestors of generations predominantly as Italians and Spanish, but with strong German, British, French, Native American, Slavic and Semitic components, making most Argentinians able to join the European Union. However, they faced very different legal circumstances that Spain and Italy had long before they joined the EU migration policy, thousands of people a day come to the consulates of Spain to process the new nationality or obtain a visa; nevertheless, they are not the most numerous among Hispanic American immigrants in Europe.


The 2011 Census recorded 3,868 Argentine-born people.[4]

The 2012 Census recorded 11,899 Argentine-born people.[1]
