Estonia and the Hague Convention
Estonia is party to the Hague Convention on Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption (Hague Adoption Convention). Therefore, all adoptions between Estonia and the United States must meet the requirements of the Convention; the U.S. implementing legislation, the Intercountry Act of 2000 (IAA); and the IAA implementing regulations.
NOTE: Special transition provisions apply to adoptions initiated before April 1, 2008. Read About Transition Cases.
