  • Hague Convention Information

    Andorra is party to the Hague Convention on Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption(Hague Adoption Convention).  Intercountry adoption processing in Convention countries is done in accordance with the requirements of the Convention; the U.S. implementing legislation, the Intercountry Adoption Act of 2000 (IAA); and the IAA’s implementing regulations, as well as the implementing legislation and regulations of the child’s country of origin.

    The Adoption and Other Forms of Protection for Vulnerable Minors Act of March 21, 1996 and the recent modification on January 3, 2013 of the Adoption Regulation governs adoption processing in Andorra.

    The small number of children that are eligible for adoption are generally adopted by Andorran citizens.  Currently no U.S. accredited adoption service providers are authorized to work in Andorra, so it is not possible at this time for U.S. citizens to adopt an Andorran child pursuant to the Hague Adoption Convention.

    Please visit the Department’s Country Specific Information for more information on travelling to Andorra, and the U.S. Consulate General in Barcelona’s website for information on consular services.
