Brazilians in France form one of the largest immigrant groups from Latin America. Nearly half of them live in French Guiana, including many who have crossed the border without formal permission from France.
The ancestral origins of the Brazilian nation show recent ancestors of generations predominantly as Italians and Portuguese, but with strong Spanish, Japanese, German, British, French, Native American, Slavic and Semitic components, making most Brazilians able to join the European Union. However, they faced very different legal circumstances that Portugal and Italy had long before they joined the EU migration policy, thousands of people a day come to the consulates of Portugal to process the new nationality or obtain a visa; nevertheless, they are not the most numerous among Latin American immigrants in Europe.
The 2011 Census recorded 38,584 Brazilian-born people.
