Resource: Country Information for ASPs

Last Updated: June 17, 2021

Dear ASPs,

In response to ASP feedback regarding the need for more assistance in seeking or confirming information about a range of issues impacting your work on behalf of children and families, the Office of Children's Issues has published a new resource on our website.Country Information for ASPs can be located in the For Adoption Professionals Section and is intended to supplement ASP efforts to obtain information required to provide services in intercountry adoption cases.  

If you have feedback or suggestions for additional resources to include, please let us know. We appreciate your patience as we continue to develop the sections on Foreign Authorization and Habitual Residence Determinations. As information becomes available, we will disseminate it via our listserv and will add information to our website in this section. We encourage ASPs to continue to pursue clarifications and guidance as needed through your representatives and contact in the relevant country of origin.
