United Kingdom -- Nepal Update
3 June 2010 – Nepal update
The Hague Bureau published the report of its technical assistance mission to Nepal in November 2009 which looked at the intercountry adoption processes in Nepal. It recommends to the Nepalese Government a temporary suspension of adoptions while the necessary reform of the intercountry adoption process is undertaken.
Following this new evidence, an Order was made to suspend adoptions from Nepal by British citizens. The Order came into force on 3 May 2010.
