Please reference the November 1, 2019 intercountry adoption notice for further details.
Important: Timely submission of post-adoption reports (PARs) is critical to our ongoing efforts to resume intercountry adoptions between the United States and Kazakhstan. Adoptive parents of Kazakh children are requested to submit outstanding PARs as soon as possible.
The Kazakhstan Adoption Authority, the Ministry of Education and Science (MOES), confirmed to the U.S. Central Authority that the suspension on intercountry adoption between the United States and Kazakhstan remains in place pending submission of all outstanding post-adoption reports (PARs). The Department of State is continuing discussions with Kazakhstan and will provide updated information as it becomes available.
