The Philippines is party to the Hague Convention on Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption (Hague Adoption Convention). Therefore, all intercountry adoptions between The Philippines and the United States must meet the requirements of the Convention and U.S. law implementing the Convention. Philippines adoptions are conducted through a collaborative effort of a Hague accredited adoption agency in the U.S. and by the National Authority for Child Case (NACC).

Only 1 trip is required for adoption from the Philippines. Once you are in country, you will meet your child and he/she will be with you for the duration of your stay. Required time in country is 5-7 days in length. Some states in the Philippines will require you to be present for court thus lengthening your in country stay by several weeks. You will pick up the child and their documents from the orphanage and then travel to the US Embassy in Manila where you will have your child evaluated at the medical clinic there and obtain their immigrant visa.
