Starting in November, we will be posting monthly
to frequently asked questions
regarding Korean adoptee citizenship.
Meanwhile, be counted in the global #koreanadopteecensus
15,000+ Korean Adoptees' Citizenship Status Unknown
Help count the citizenship statuses of Korean adoptees around the world. This quick survey will help assess the needs of Koreans sent overseas for adoption: whether your adoption was finalized or not, whether your naturalization was completed or not.
Your response will help us record what has been considered unverifiable, as some reports indicate up to 15,516 out of 166,512 Korean adoptees placed through agencies alone have not been reachable. Some estimate there are 264,000 of us.
To confirm the numbers and better understand the experiences of not having citizenship, we encourage every overseas Korean adoptee to participate.
