Alert: Increased Delays to Finalize Adoptions

U. S. Embassy in Warsaw reports delays in the processing and approval of intercountry adoption cases by the Ministry of Family, Labor and Social Policy, Poland’s Central Authority under the Hague Adoption Convention.  The process is currently taking approximately 60-90 days to receive approval to finalize the cases in Polish court. This is due in part to a re-organization within the Ministry. The U.S. Embassy is closely monitoring the situation.

Please continue to monitor adoption.state.gov for updated information on intercountry adoption in Warsaw.
