UgandaDidier Reynders welcomes agreement Ugandan government for departure adoption children

BRUSSELS, Belgium, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Didier Reynders announces that the Ugandan government has given its approval for the departure of four adoption children to Belgium. This decision allows for the Ugandan children to leave Kampala soon with a humanitarian visa to our country, together with their parents. 

The Minister thanks the Ugandan government for this decision, and in particular President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, who he met on 22 September in the margins of the General Assembly of the United Nations in New York. During his meeting with the Ugandan President, Minister Reynders mentioned the case of these four adoption children.

Didier Reynders is happy that the parents will soon be able to return home together with their children. Too long they lived in uncertainty.

The Ugandan and the Belgian governments were in constant consultation. A first group of six children received the permission to leave the country and their visas at the end of August. They already arrived in our country.

For the four other children, the legal situation was different. Their applications had been filed after the entry into force of the new adoption law. This law limited the possibilities for foreigners to adopt a Ugandan child or to obtain custody. Therefore a solution in accordance with Ugandan and Belgian legislation had to be found.

The Belgian embassy in Kampala remains ready to assist the parents for administrative and practical help in the handling of this procedure.
