In 2010, Spain had the second-highest number of victims of human trafficking in the European Union, after Italy.

Most victims of trafficking for the purpose of sexual exploitation in Spain come from Nigeria, Romania, Ukraine, Russia, Croatia, Bulgaria, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay and China.

Many of the victims do not speak Spanish, are under threat, in debt, and unaware that help is available. They are also undocumented immigrants and are afraid to go to the police.

In 2013, 13% of the trafficking victims in Spain were Nigerian citizens.
