Singapore has barred British nationals from adopting children here.
This is believed to be the first time citizens from any particular country are not allowed to adopt in Singapore.
The move is a response to the United Kingdom’s decision in January to drop Singapore from a list of countries where it recognises adoptions automatically.
A British High Commission spokesman told The Sunday Times that Singapore was removed from the list as it has not signed the Hague Convention on Intercountry Adoption.
