Immigration from Adoption Eligibility

There are certain procedures for permitting immigration through adoption. Before you decide to seek immigration through adoption, familiarize yourself with certain requirements. In order to be eligible to adopt, you must be a U.S. citizen, habitually reside in the U.S., seek legal agreement with your spouse (if applicable), and you must be 24 years of age or older.

If seeking adoption through the Hague Process, in order for a child to be classified as a Hague Convention Adoptee, the child must meet these criteria: be under 16 at time of filing, reside in a Convention Country, and determined eligible through Central Authority of that country and granted consent.
