Redesigned State Department Adoption Website

The U.S. Department of State has launched a redesigned website for citizens interested in finding out more about intercountry adoption. The new site offers user-friendly access to a variety of materials for prospective parents, social workers and other professionals, and even adoptees. There are five main sections to the site:

  • Adoption Process
  • Hague Convention
  • Country Information
  • U.S. Visa for Your Child
  • Adoption Community

The site offers general information on intercountry adoptions, as well as country-specific details and news. Differences between adopting from countries that are and those that are not parties to the Hague Convention on the Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Inter-Country Adoption are presented. Comprehensive contact information and links to social media are also featured.
