  • Hague Convention Information

    Tunisia is not party to the Hague Convention on Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption ( Hague Adoption Convention ). Therefore, when the Hague Adoption Convention entered into force for the United States on April 1, 2008, intercountry adoption processing for Tunisia did not change.

    The Department of State does not maintain information on the adoption process in Tunisia because adoptions from Tunisia are rare; fewer than five adoptions by American citizen parents have taken place in the past five years. Please visit the Department's Country Specific Information sheets for more information on travelling to Tunisia and the U.S. Embassy Tunis's website for information on consular services.
