Arabs in Serbia (Serbian: Арапи у Србији) are mostly expatriates from a range of Arab countries, particularly Lebanon, Syria, the Palestinian Territories, Iraq, and Jordan; and also small groups from Egypt, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Libya and Sudan. Lebanese and Syrian citizens were the first Arabs to arrive in modern Serbia. As a result of the Arab Spring and the Syrian Civil War, many have the status of refugees or illegal immigrants, trying to immigrate to Western Europe.
