Hague Convention Information

Qatar is not party to the Hague Convention on Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption ( Hague Adoption Convention ). Therefore, when the Hague Adoption Convention entered into force for the United States on April 1, 2008, intercountry adoption processing for Qatar did not change.

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