Azerbaijanis in France (Azerbaijani: Fransa azərbaycanlıları) is a small Azerbaijani diaspora in France, are French citizens and permanent residents of ethnic Azerbaijani background. Most Azerbaijani-France have immigrated to France from the Republic of Azerbaijan and Iran.


The Azerbaijani immigrants are mostly asylum-seekers or political refugees, who came to France following the Iranian Revolution in 1979.[citation needed]
