A Greek Brazilian (Portuguese: Greco-brasileiro or Heleno-brasileiro) is a Brazilian citizen of full, partial or predominantly Greek heritage – or a Greek-born person residing in Brazil.

The Greeks started immigrating in the end of the 19th and throughout the early and middle 20th century, in an attempt to find a better, more prosperous life, as well as for ideological reasons.

The Greek community in Brazil numbers more than 25,000 people. They are located throughout the country, with 20,000 Greeks living in São Paulo alone.
