Yes, but only Romanian citizens living abroad can do so. In the case of marriages, at least one of them must be a Romanian citizen.

However, there are two exceptions in which citizens of other states may adopt in Romania:

  • The adopter or one of the spouses is a relative up to the fourth degree of kinship of the minor.
  • The adopter is the spouse of the child's biological or adoptive parent.
