Over the past 60+ years, Holt has assisted with adoptions from nearly 30 countries. Some of the programs are small, but still in existence, while others have been long closed. Holt’s services for adoptees may be limited if we no longer have any connections with our overseas partner in your birth country.
To determine what services Holt can provide we must first confirm that we participated in your adoption. Once this has been verified, you’ll receive an email and further instructions.
If Holt International did assist with your adoption, we may be able to provide assistance with issues such as file copies, citizenship, counseling referrals, and independent search resources.
Below are the countries where Holt has had an adoption program at some time since 1956. Those indicated in blue have active adoption or child welfare programs, although search services may or may not be available. If your country of birth does not have an active program, or is not on the list, please contact us for assistance. We will be adding more birth countries with active programs to the main menu, so do check back for more information.
