IBESR - According to the new director, the minimum age for adoptive parents is 30 years of age (just like the law stipulates). She is no longer requiring the age to be 35 because that is not written into the law.
Also, every family that has biological children has to get a 'presidential waiver' because the formal law states that a family cannot have biological children. In the past, getting such a waiver was obtainable.
Adoptive families who only have adopted children do not have to get the waiver.
Also, couples must be married. The ten (10) years of marriage is not a strict requirement, but the couple must have been together for that time (e.g. living together 4 years, married 6 years if fine).
U.S. Embassy - part of the visa physical is a required TB test now, this has to be included in the physical.
U.S.C.I.S. Haiti - Adoptive families can still participate in the Adjudication Orphan First Pilot Program but the child's/family's file cannot be submitted to IBESR at the time of filing the papers for the Adjudication Orphan First.
