The Ministry of Interior (MOI) has revised their process because many orphanages are submitting adopted children’s files for passport approvals without having all the necessary documents and/or without having the necessary stamps or authentifications.
As a result, files had been stuck inside of MOI for months with the MOI office getting the blame.
Now, there is an intermediate office inside of MOI where the documents are reviewed and the file will not be moved to the office where the interview takes place until all documents are in order. Then the interview can take place and the Director of Political Affairs signs the letter to authorize the issuance of the Haitian passport.
MOI has always required a photocopy of the adopting family's I.D. or passport. They prefer a driver's license because that number is assigned and does not change. Also, they want the adoptive parents' social security number (U.S. families). That is not anything new either...
