Adopted Children Immigrant Visas

Vietnam’s Department Of Adoptions is Accepting Applications From U.S. Hague-Accredited Adoption Service Providers Wishing To Facilitate Adoptions In Vietnam Under A Limited Intercountry Adoption Program

The Department of Adoptions within the Ministry of Justice of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam is now accepting applications from U.S. Hague-accredited adoption service providers (ASPs) for authorization to operate a limited intercountry adoption program for children with special needs as defined by Vietnamese law, children older than five, and children in biological sibling groups of two or more in Vietnam. For more information, including Vietnam’s ASP selection criteria and application submission deadline, please go to

This development does not change the fact that U.S. intercountry adoptions from Vietnam remain suspended at this time. The Department of State’s February 2012 determination not to certify Convention adoptions from Vietnam remains in effect at this time. We will publish more information on as it becomes available.
