In my store I defined list of supported billing and shipping countries at store settings. This list is respected during checkout process - limited list of countries is shown when customer is entering the address. But when user is on "Address book" tab of user profile page and wants to add new address list is not limited, but all countries are allowed there.

How can I limit list of displayed countries when editing address at address book user profile tab?

I tried using hook_form_alter() but I don't see country drop-down there? Also tried hook_preprocess_input() and I see other fields, but not country drop-down.

theme_preprocess_field() didn't help either.

And of course, I didn't find that option in back-end.

  • That's really a bug, address book entry should respect those too. There is an issue about this.

Found solution here: https://docs.drupalcommerce.org/commerce2/developer-guide/customers/addresses/countries-and-subdivisions

Created new module "country_limit" added event subsriber like explained there:


namespace Drupal\country_limit;

use Drupal\address\Event\AddressEvents;
use Drupal\address\Event\AvailableCountriesEvent;
use Symfony\Component\EventDispatcher\EventSubscriberInterface;

class LimitCountriesEventSubscriber implements EventSubscriberInterface {

  public static function getSubscribedEvents() {
    $events[AddressEvents::AVAILABLE_COUNTRIES][] = ['onAvailableCountries'];
    return $events;

  public function onAvailableCountries(AvailableCountriesEvent $event) {
    $countries = ['AT' => 'AT', 'DE' => 'DE', 'CH' => 'CH'];


and registered it like:

  # Name of this service.
    # Event subscriber class that will listen for the events.
    class: '\Drupal\country_limit\LimitCountriesEventSubscriber'
    # Tagged as an event_subscriber to register this subscriber with the event_dispatch service.
      - { name: 'event_subscriber' }

Event subsriber class is directly inside "src" dir, since I don't have other functionalities in this module.
