As part of its effort to protect itself as much as possible against coronavirus, the Haitian government has suspended all flights entering its territory. Socialisation visits are currently not possible for any foreign national.
The temporary French procedure, which allowed adopters from mainland France to come and collect their Haitian children in Guadeloupe, is currently suspended. Additionally, according to a MAI press release:
Suspension of international adoptions in Haiti (15 March 2020)
The Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs issued a 3-month suspension order for international adoptions in Haiti, dating from its publication in the Journal Officiel of the French Republic.
This difficult decision was taken due to the current health situation in the country.
The decision concerns the cases of adoption applicants residing in France and who have not been matched by the date of the order’s entry into force.
The context of insecurity in Haiti led Ministry authorities to extend the order until 31 August 2020 for all current procedures, which had not led to matches before the entry into force of the initial order, on 15 March 2020.
The order was extended again until 31 December 2020. Consequently, proposals for children may not be sent to French applicants before 31 December 2020.
We deeply regret this situation and remain committed to helping our applicants wishing to adopt a Haitian child.
