Pakistan: Hague Convention Enters into Force

Pakistan: Hague Convention Enters into Force

On 1 March 2017, the Convention of 25 October 1980 on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction entered into force for Pakistan. After having deposited its instrument of accession to the Convention on 22 December 2016, Pakistan became the 96th Contracting State to the instrument.

More information is available on the Child Abduction Section of the Hague Conference website.

While not a Member State of the Hague Conference, Pakistan is now a Contracting Party to two Hague Conventions, the other instrument being the Convention of 15 November 1965 on the Service Abroad of Judicial and Extrajudicial Documents in Civil or Commercial Matters.
