Chile does not usually release children under the age of 2 for international adoption, but in all cases, preference is given to blood relatives, then to Chilean applicants, and then finally to non-Chilean applicants.. Therefore, children available for international adoption are generally age 4 and older, healthy and special needs. All adoptive parents must be at least twenty years older than the adopted child. In 2011, one child was adopted from Chile.
