Notice: Malian Law Restricts Intercountry Adoptions
Department of State Notice for Mali
Mali May 1, 2013
In December 2011, the Malian National Assembly passed a new Code of Person and the Family. The Code includes a provision that only Malian citizens will be able to complete intercountry or domestic adoptions from Mali. In the case of couples planning to adopt, both members of the couple must be Malian citizens. Note: We understand that the law may allow Malian citizens who are also dual U.S. citizens to adopt.
