Adopt from overseas

We welcome enquiries from people who wish to find out more about adopting a child from another country.

As with any adoption, it is advisable to find out as much as you can about the adoption process. There are several websites that offer information about intercountry adoption in our list of useful websites.

You will also need to be well informed about the country you are interested in adopting from.

An intercountry adoption can be expensive. Like all adoption agencies we make charges for undertaking this service. In addition there are travel expenses, fees for translation, fees for notarisation and various other costs in the country of origin. Costs may vary depending on the country of choice.

Intercountry adoptions can be complicated because the Norfolk Adoption Agency must comply with UK regulations as well as the child’s country or origin. Intercountry adopters should be prepared to have patience and determination.
Contact us if you are interested in finding out more, so we can send you some booklets, together with information about our charges.
After that, if you wish to take it further the next step would be to attend an initial meeting in our office to talk about your application and ask any questions.
We look forward to hearing from you.
