Adoption Agencies and Information for the Slovak Republic
Intercountry adoption in Slovakia can only take place if the adoptive parents’ home country has ratified the Hague Convention on Intercountry Adoption. The United States has signed but not yet ratified this Convention. The Department of State and Department of Homeland Security are preparing the implementing regulations so that the United States can ratify the Convention in 2007. Accordingly, the Slovak Republic is currently (january, 2007) closed to adoptions by US citizens.
