Enter a country

     IRC site

The right to enter one's own country, which is recognized in Article 12(4) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (1966), is not included in the CRC. The CRC does include the right of the child and parents to enter a State party for the purposes of family reunification, and the right of the child or parents to enter one's own country for the purposes of contact with a parent or child residing in a different country.
