Colombia: Foreign Supervised Providers

Last Updated: January 4, 2021

Based on recent discussions with Embassy Bogota and the Instituto Colombiano de Bienestar Familia (ICBF), ASPs are not required to have foreign supervised provider agreements with the private orphanages designated by ICBF to facilitate intercountry adoptions in Colombia when they follow ICBF’s normal process for adoption. If an ASP has a case that falls outside of ICBFs standard process, the ASP will need to determine if a foreign supervised provider agreement is necessary with an orphanage, entity, or person based on the adoption services provided in that case.
