Adoption Agencies and Information for Tajikistan
On May 3, 2006, Tajikistan changed its Family Code to prohibit intercountry adoption of Tajik orphans. While couples which consist of at least one Tajik citizen will still be allowed to adopt according to the below procedures, all other adoptions by non-Tajik citizens are expressly forbidden by Tajik law. There are no recognized adoption agencies in Tajikistan and there are few attorneys who will agree to even take on adoption cases, although there are several who have experience.
