  • Hague Convention Information

    Turkmenistan 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 Turkmenistan did not change.

    The Department of State does not maintain files on the adoption process in Turkmenistan because adoptions from Turkmenistan are rare. Fewer than five adoptions by American citizen parents have taken place since 1999. Please visit the Department's Country Specific Information sheets for more information on travelling to Turkmenistan and the U.S. Embassy Ashgabat Turkmenistan website for information on consular services.
