Hague Convention Countries - Adoption

The Hague convention adoptions are recognised in the UK and the child will normally gain automatic British citizenship, provided one of the adoptive parents is habitually resident in the UK and is a British Citizen. The rules and process governing recognition of British citizenship status of the adopted child are however very complex. You should book a consultation for legal advice to verify whether adoption in question is recognised and whether the child really does qualify.
