Region Once Closed in Kazakhstan Now Open

The Kazakhstan Ministry of Education along with the Department of Education of Almaty City are allowing the Almaty region to re-open to international adoption. For over a year, the Almaty region has been closed to Americans adopting from Kazakhstan as a restrictive effort imposed to enforce timely post-placement report submittal from American agencies. Some European agencies were able to proceed with adoptions in that region during the closure.

Because Children’s Hope met post-placement deadlines as required, we expect to have more families receiving travel dates for that region soon.
