Hague Convention Information

Cuba is party to the Hague Convention on Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption ( Hague Adoption Convention ). Therefore, adoptions between Cuba and the United States are governed by the requirements of the Convention and the laws and regulations implementing the Convention in both the United States and Cuba.

The Department of State does not maintain files on the adoption process in Cuba because adoptions from Cuba are rare. Fewer than five adoptions by American citizen parents have taken place in the last five years. Please visit the Department's Country Specific Information sheets for more information on travelling to Cuba and the website of the U.S. Interest Section in Havana for information on consular services.
