Hague Adoption Convention Country? No
Hague Convention Information
UNITED ARAB EMIRATES 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 United Arab Emirates did not change.
The Department of State does not maintain files on the adoption process in the United Arab Emirates because adoptions from United Arab Emirates are rare; fewer than five adoptions by American citizen parents have taken place in the past 5 years. Please visit the Department's Country Specific Information sheets for more information on travelling to United Arab Emirates and the U.S. Embassy Dubai's website for information on consular services.
