Return home and notify your council of your intention to adopt within 14 days of arriving in the UK

UKVI requires both parents to accompany the baby into the country. As kafala was obtained in Morocco, you will need to adopt your baby in the UK courts. Once you arrive in the UK it is essential to let your local authority know of your arrival within 14 days of entering the UK of your intention to adopt the baby in the UK. This notification must be made in writing. Failure to comply can result in delays in the adoption process.
