Arabs in Romania (Romanian: Arabii din România) 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 Romania. Most Arab Romanians are of Lebanese or Syrian origin. In the forty-year history of this community, 5,000 Arabs have migrated to Romania.[1][2] It is estimated that almost half a million Middle Eastern Arabs studied in Romania during the 1980s.[3]

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