Alert : Direction Générale de Migration to Review Grandfathered Cases

In a June 6th meeting, the Congolese Direction Générale de Migration (DGM) informed the U.S. Embassy in Kinshasa that the DGM would be willing to conduct a review of the documents for the children whose cases appear to meet the DGM’s exception criteria (outlined in the Department of State’s October 23, 2013 Adoption Alert) and would consider issuing exit permits in these cases.

The DGM did not provide a timeframe for the completion of the review nor did it guarantee that the children will receive exit permits.

Furthermore, the DGM only agreed to review cases provided by the U.S. Embassy only once, and we have no reason to expect that the DGM would consider reviewing cases submitted at a later date.

We ask that adoptive families whose cases met the DGM’s exception criteria or their local representative hand-deliver the documents listed below to the U.S. Embassy. Documents will be accepted Monday through Thursday between 2:00 and 3:00 p.m. The U.S. Embassy will deliver cases with complete documentation the DGM for review. To ensure that the DGM reviews the cases as quickly as possible, the U.S. Embassy must receive all documents no later than June 25, 2014.
