Beninese people in France consist of migrants from Benin and their descendants living and working in France.


The first Beninese immigrants in France arrived in the 1970s and the 1980s. They came mostly from urban areas.[1] Today, the population has become more and more numerous, but a little less than those from the neighboring nation of Togo.
