SPECIAL REGIONAL CONSIDERATIONS - INDIA


LOGISTICS

India is a party to the Hague Convention on Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption (the Convention) and with which the Convention is in force for the United States. Because India is a Convention country, adoption services must be provided by an 'accredited agency', 'temporarily accredited agency', 'approved person', 'supervised provider', or 'exempted provider' as those terms are defined by the Convention. In addition, all recognized adoption agencies (or, as they are referred to in India, placement agencies) in India are local and must be registered with their Indian state Voluntary Coordinating Agency (VCA). No placement agencies provide national coverage, so prospective adoptive parents must determine the Indian state from which they propose to adopt. CARA licenses all the VCAs and all Indian placement agencies. 4
