U.S. Department of State Adoption Alert, March 1, 2010

On February 24, 2010, the Deputy Prime Minister of Swaziland informed the U.S. Embassy in Mbabane that it will not process intercountry adoptions cases while the Department of Social Welfare completes a review of its adoption procedures.  Only cases that were already with the Swaziland High Court will be processed during the review.
