The suspension is in effect due to outstanding post-adoption reports for Kazakh children previously adopted by U.S. parents.

The DOS emphasizes that “[t]imely submission of [post adoption reports] is critical to our ongoing efforts to resume intercountry adoptions between the United States and Kazakhstan.” For this reason, it urges U.S. adoptive parents of Kazakh children to comply with Kazakhstan's post adoption reporting requirements in order to convince Kazakhstan to lift its suspension on future adoptions by U.S. parents. We have an article on site discussing Kazakhstan's post-adoption reporting requirements [see article].
