For those seeking to adopt a child from overseas, Australia has intercountry adoption agreements with several countries, or they can adopt through expatriate adoption.

Highlights

  • Out of 334 adoptions finalised in 2019-20, only 37 were intercountry adoptions.
  • Expatriate adoption requires the adoptive parents to live overseas for a minimum of 12 months for reasons other than adopting a child.
  • In 2019, the India-Australia intercountry adoption program was restarted, but in Queensland and Northern Territory.
