To help you navigate the adoption process in a specific country, we offer information about whether a country is a Hague Adoption Convention country and if intercountry adoptions between that country and the United States are possible. Our country information also provides the name and contact details of a country's adoption authority and describes the eligibility requirements for prospective adoptive parents and children to be adopted. You will find other key contacts, information about the role of the court and adoption agencies, as well as adoption statistics. Be sure to read our country-specific Adoption Alerts and Notices with important updates to the adoption process in that country. Learn more about specific countries’ adoption processes here.
