Turks in Mexico (Turkish: Meksika Türkleri, Spanish: mexicanos turcos) comprise Turkish people living in Mexico and their Mexican-born descendants. The Turkish community is largely made up of immigrants, or the descendants of immigrants, born in the Ottoman Empire before 1923, in the Republic of Turkey since then, or in neighbouring countries once part of the Ottoman Empire that still have some Turkish population.
According to census records, "Turks" have been present in Mexico since at least 1895 (453 individuals were counted). However, almost none of the immigrants from the Ottoman Empire that identified as "Turks" with Mexican immigration officials were ethnically Turkish. Instead being primarily Lebanese, Syrians and Jews.
