Haiti: IBESR Accepting New Adoption Cases
April 27, 2010
Haiti’s adoption authority, the Institut du Bien-être Social et de Recherches (IBESR), has informed the U.S. Government that they are now accepting new adoption applications for Haitian children who were either documented as orphans before January 12, 2010, or relinquished by their birth parent(s) since the earthquake. We encourage prospective adoptive parents to submit their adoption applications directly through the IBESR to ensure that the process is done in accordance with Haitian legal requirements. For more details on inter-country adoptions from Haiti please see Haiti country specific page.
