State Department: Romania - Caution, May 30, 1991

Romania - Caution
May 30, 1991

The Department of State advises U.S. citizens to continue to exercise caution when traveling in Romania. American visitors to Romania may encounter large street demonstrations in urban areas which could involve significant unrest. They should avoid areas where such demonstrations are in progress and, in particular, refrain from attempts to photograph the demonstrations.

Americans contemplating adopting a child in Romania should be aware that the Romanian government is considering changes in legislation and procedures which will further regulate adoptions in that country. These changes may involve lengthy delays or a suspension of adoptions, indeed, the Romanian Adoption Commission has announced that its adoption proceedings will be suspended effective June 1 so that it can reorganize its activities. In light of these uncertainties, prospective adoptive parents are urged to defer travel to Romania for the present.

U.S. citizens should ensure that they understand U.S. requirements for the admission of adopted children into the United States by contacting the nearest office of the Immigration and Naturalization Service for information.

Americans should check with the Department of State (202) 647-3444 for the latest information about adoption in Romania.

If already in Romania, Americans are urged to contact the Consular Section of the American Embassy in Bucharest. The Embassy can explain the current situation in Romania and the requirements of both Romanian and American law and will help you as much as possible consistent with U.S. laws and regulations.

U.S. citizens in Romania should register and keep in close touch with the U.S. Embassy in Bucharest, Strada Tudor Arghezi, 7-9, tel. 10-40-40, for current information.

No. 91-122

This advisory replaces the one issued on May 22, 1991 and updates information for those wishing to adopt Romanian children.
