Married couples and singles can adopt. Vietnam is flexible with age requirements. Parents must be 20 years older than child and if you are above 55 years of age, the Vietnam government asks that you are open to adopt a child of one year of age.
Children can be assigned as young as six weeks old, but a child will probably be about three to four months old before the adoption is complete and she can leave the country. Girls and boys are equally available; however, there are more boys available. Although infants are available the wait for such a child is longer, far more older children are available.
Yes, children with special needs are available and the fee for such a child can be reduced.
About one month after your paperwork is in Vietnam, and you have received an assignment of a child, you can travel to meet your child and begin the adoption process.
At least one parent must make two trips to Vietnam. On the first trip, which lasts about three to five days, you will meet your child and file your application for adoption. You will then be assigned a court date and asked to return 45 days later for the "Giving and Receiving Ceremony" at which time your child is officially adopted. On your second trip, you will be in the country for about ten days, as your child will need to be issued a new birth certificate, passport and a U.S. visa.
Usually a young baby is assigned to you after all your paperwork is in Vietnam. If you want a boy you can expect an asssignment sooner than if you want a girl.
The babies and children, overall, are well cared for. You select the child based on the child's photo and medical history.
There are few restrictions as to who can adopt, and once you are paper-ready, you wait just a few months before you adopt your child.
Only one parent must travel. The travel facilitator will be available to you at any time. The facilitator will assist you the entire time you are there. The facilitator will meet you at the airport to get you to the hotel, and to your child's orphanage city for all the official business that takes place there as well as to the official medical exam and to the U.S. Embassy.
The fee for one child is $14,500. These fees; however, do not include your home study, BCIS (Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services) fees, visas, and your travel expenses to Vietnam. Air travel is about $1,000 per person. If your home study fee is about $1,500, you can expect to spend under or around $20,000 for all expenses, including transportation for two persons.
