Peru Ends Temporary Suspension of Adoptions
As of February 16, 2017, the Peruvian government has announced that the temporary suspension of adoptions announced in September 2016 is no longer in effect. The suspension of all domestic and international adoptions was announced pending an internal review of adoption procedures and cases over the past five years. The review stemmed in part from concerns related to post-adoption reporting compliance. While the suspension has since been lifted, delays continue to be reported. The Department of State continues to monitor the situation. For updated information, continue to monitor adoption.state.gov.
