International Parental Child Abduction

Tanzania is not a signatory to the 1980 Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction (Hague Abduction Convention), nor are there any bilateral agreements in force between Tanzania and the United States concerning international parental child abduction.

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.
