Where are you from? VS. Where do you come from?

Is there a meaning difference between them? I think they are interchangeable for the same meaning and they are asking countries. What do you native English speakers think? Thank you so much as usual and have a good day.

Thank you so much and then do I have to figure out what it means in context?
canadian45 they are interchangeable for the same meaning I agree. and they are asking about countries. not necessarily countries It could be asking about places within one country.
and then do I have to figure out what it means in context? That should be easy. If a foreign country is involved, the person will probably name the country. If it's all within one country, the person will name the area or city (s)he is from.
Hmm... What about: where are you coming from ?

What about: where are you coming from ?
That question doesn't have the meaning that we have been talking about. It is talking about the present or near future.

A. I'll be there as soon as I can, hopefully in about 20 minutes.
B. Okay, where are you coming from?

It can also be used for some hours or even days.

It depends on the context.

‘Where do you come from?’ generally relates to where were you born.

NOTE: A birthplace can be different to where you live. (It might seem obvious, but some people never think of it.).

‘Where are you coming from?’ may relate to where you live (where you are coming from) or possibly even where you have been that day (activity-wise) and if you have been out, then you could say: ‘I’m coming from Ikea.’


Simply

Where do you come from? = What's your country of origin? or Where do you live right now?

Where are you coming from? = Where were you just before you got here?

Where are you from? VS. Where do you come from?

Dear Everyone,

I would like to make sure with these questions. Please help to answer it clearly. I need your help. If you think they are the same meaning and use at the same time correctly, please just say yes or no. If you have other explanations, write it down. Thank you so much!
