Uganda Adoption

Country-specific adoption information for parents considering adopting from Uganda.



The Ugandan government requires that adoptive parents live in Uganda for a minimum of three years and foster the prospective child for 36 months before the adoption is complete, but the High Court judges often waive this requirement.
