Invitation to follow-up Conference Call regarding the Exit Permit Suspension in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC)

The Department of State invites adoptive families and prospective adoptive families to participate in a conference call Wednesday, June 11 from 10am-11:30am EST to address families’ concerns regarding the DRC exit permit suspension. 
The call is being held in response to families’ requests for additional time following our May 16 call.  We will also address what we have learned to date regarding the latest developments reported in our May 27 adoption notice.  There will be brief remarks regarding developments followed by a question and answer period.

If you would like to send your questions ahead of the call, please send them to ExitPermitSuspensionDRC@state.gov.  We will try to address as many questions on the call as we’re able, but will respond to all questions via email.
