International vs. Domestic

The number of children adopted internationally in Spain was slightly lower than that of domestic adoptions, with 475 international adoptions registered in 2018. As of the same year, the Community of Madrid was the Spanish region that recorded a highest number of this type of adoptions with almost one hundred. The latest records also reveal that most of the children were adopted in European countries, with a share of 27 percent of all international adoptions.

Spaniards: very suitable adoptive parents

In 2018, Spain issued 924 certificates of suitability for international adoption, most of them in the autonomous community of Andalusia. However, the Mediterranean country has been issuing fewer of these certificates during the last few years, with 2013 recording the highest number of them at almost 2.3 thousand certificates of suitability.
