Syrian Brazilians (Portuguese: Sírio-brasileiros) are Brazilian citizens of full, partial, or predominantly Syrian ancestry, or Syrian-born immigrants in Brazil.

The population of Brazil of either full or partial Syrian descent is estimated by the Brazilian government to be around 4 [2] million people. According to research conducted by IBGE in 2008, 0.9% of White Brazilian respondents said they had familial origins from the Middle East, which equals less than 2 million people. They are mostly of Lebanese and Syrian descent.[3]
