International Adoption Fees to Increase



From a notice published by the Department of State on February 1, 2018. You might remember that the Department of State designated a new accrediting entity, IAAME (Intercountry Adoption Accreditation and Maintenance Entity) on July 28, 2017. IAAME is replacing the Council on Accreditation (COA) in administering and accrediting international adoption agencies as required by the Hague Treaty on Intercountry Adoption.

Now, the Department of State has approved a new fee schedule. It’s important to note that this new fee schedule includes a non-refundable $500 charge for each adoption for monitoring and oversight. Click on the graphic below for a view of the fees.

IAAME’s policy and procedure manual, once published, will include more information for (Adoption Service Providers) regarding the operational aspects of implementing the fee schedule, including how cases will be recorded and reported. IAAME’s fee schedule, along with an explanation of fees and FAQ regarding the schedule and it structure, are included below and will shortly be available on (the IAAME website).

As always, if you think that this information affects you or your international adoption process, please contact your adoption agency and seek their advice.
