The U.S. Department of State (DOS) noted that Honduras ratified the Hague Adoption Convention on March 6, 2019 [PDF version]. The Hague Convention will take effect in Honduras on July 1, 2019. The DOS explains in the news update that it “is determining if the United States may process [Hague] Convention adoptions with Honduras pursuant to U.S. law.”

Honduras is the 101st nation to ratify the Hague Convention. We discussed Guyana's becoming the 100th signatory to the Hague Convention in a separate and recent post [see blog].
