Travel.State.Gov > Intercountry Adoption News and Notices > China: Update on Hosting Programs and Clarification Regarding Foreign Supervised Provider Agreements
This notice updates the China Adoption Notice posted on our website on February 27, 2018.
Update Regarding Chinese Hosting Programs:
The China Center for Children’s Welfare and Adoption (CCCWA) considers hosting programs an international adoption service. CCCWA will initiate and oversee the program from planning through implementation. ASPs that have an interest in pursuing a hosting program need to contact CCCWA.
Clarification Regarding Foreign Supervised Providers:
When U.S. accredited or approved ASPs or their representatives work directly with a publicly administered orphanage in China in intercountry adoption cases, a foreign supervised provider agreement is not required. However, when U.S. accredited or approved ASPs or their representatives work directly with a privately administered orphanage in China in intercountry adoption cases, a foreign supervised provider agreement between the ASP and the orphanage is required.
For more information on when U.S. ASPs working with entities abroad need foreign supervised provider agreements, please see the guidance on our website.
