Intercountry adoptions are not currently possible between Andorra and the United States.

Hague Convention Information

The few Andorran children who are eligible for adoption are generally adopted by Andorran citizens, to whom priority is given.  There are currently no U.S. accredited or approved adoption service providers authorized to work in Andorra. Under U.S. law, an accredited or approved adoption service provider must serve as the primary provider in adoption cases between the United States and Andorra.  Under Andorran law, foreign adoption service providers must be authorized to provide adoption services in Andorra by the Ministry of Health and Welfare. Therefore, intercountry adoption from Andorra to the U.S. is not possible at this time.

Andorra is a party to the Hague Convention on Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption (Convention).  Intercountry adoption processing in Convention countries must be done in accordance with the Convention; the Intercountry Adoption Act of 2000 (IAA); the IAA’s implementing regulations; and all applicable legislation and regulations of Andorra.

Andorra is not considered a country of origin for intercountry adoption at this time.  While adoption is legally possible, children from Andorra are not generally placed for intercountry adoption.  No child from Andorra has received a U.S. immigrant visa based on an intercountry adoption in the past ten fiscal years.  The information provided is intended primarily to assist in extremely rare adoption cases from Andorra, including adoptions of children from Andorra by relatives in the United States, as well as adoptions from third countries by U.S. citizens living in Andorra.

U.S. citizens interested in adopting children from Andorra should contact the Central Adoption Authority of Andorra to inquire about applicable laws and procedures.  U.S. citizen prospective adoptive parents living in Andorra who would like to adopt a child from the United States or from a third country should also contact Andorra’s Central Authority.  See contact information below.
