Intercountry adoption: exception requests

The Department for Education (DfE) has published information about exception requests to adopt children from countries with special restrictions.

The guidance is aimed at prospective adopters and outlines the Department for Education’s process for handling exception requests to adopt children from countries where special restrictions are in place. The information reflects and expands on the process set out in the Adoptions with a Foreign Element (Special Restrictions on Adoptions from Abroad) Regulations 2008.

The full guide containing all of the information you need to know is available here.
