International Parental Child Abduction

The United States has been a treaty partner under the 1980 Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International parental child abductions (Hague Abduction Convention) since December 1, 1990.

If your child has been abducted from the United States to Tanzania, speak with a U.S. State Department officer to discuss your case. We know what resources are available in different countries and can answer questions. Click here for Tanzania-specific information, including emergency contact details.
