Congolese people in France consist of migrants from Democratic Republic of the Congo and Republic of the Congo and their descendants living and working in France, mostly in banlieue.


The first Congolese people in France arrived later than the first Black African immigrants. While people from the Senegal River Valley (Senegal, Mali, Mauritania, Guinea) first arrived in the 1960s, Central Africans (chiefly from Cameroon and Congo), arrived in the 1970s.[2] Most of them come for work or familial reunification, but there is also a large number of Congolese people who come with the statute of political asylum during the 1990s.[3]
