Kazakhstan Approval of New Hague Convention Adoption Process

The Ministry of Education and Science, the Central Authority of Kazakhstan, has confirmed it is in the process of approving U.S. adoption service providers (ASPs) to process Hague Convention adoptions from Kazakhstan to the United States, and has already accredited several ASPs.

Approval of ASPs was the final step needed for Kazakhstan to complete its implementation of the Hague Adoption Convention.  Each of the U.S. ASPs approved by the Government of Kazakhstan may begin accepting applications for adoptions under the new procedures on its date of authorization. 

The U.S. Department of State is pleased to have the opportunity to work with Kazakhstan as a Hague Adoption Convention partner and to complete Convention intercountry adoptions of eligible children from Kazakhstan by qualified adoptive parents in the United States.

Information on the new adoption procedures is available on the Central Authority's website and Department of State website.

To express any concerns about the adoption process or agencies, or any other issues please provide feedback via the Department of State website on Adoption Comment Page.
