Jamaica Acceding to Hague Abduction Convention

The Jamaican Cabinet has reportedly approved Jamaica's accession to the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, 1980.

Jamaica joins Bahamas, St. Kitts & Nevis and Trinidad & Tobago as Caribbean countries who have acceded to the treaty.

The Convention will not be in force with the United States until the U.S. accepts Jamaica’s accession to the treaty.
