Asian Nationalities in Spanish

This list of Asian nationalities in Spanish includes all the Spanish nationality adjectives for Asian countries in masculine and feminine, and with their singular and plural forms.

Do not forget two things about nationalities in Spanish:

  • They are written with lowercase.
  • They agree with the gender and number of the noun they describe.

Some of these countries have more than one correct gentilicio or demonym in Spanish, like several correct plural forms (this usually happens with many nationalities ending with in singular, as they have two correct endings, –íes and –ís).

A few countries on this list are considered Eurasian (those that have * in the green column).
