Re: Post Placement Reports
Please see the advisory below which HHAMA received from the
AAI regarding Post Placement Reports.
(i) In relation to reports 1 – 6, these will continue to be
completed by your social worker and sent by them to Helping Hands Adoption
Mediation Agency, who will transmit them to Vietnam.
(ii) In relation to reports no. 7
onwards, it is no longer a requirement by the Vietnamese Authorities for
parents to complete and send these to Vietnam. Therefore you now do not
need to complete a yearly post placement report on your child after report no.
6. However if you wish to continue to do so, the Vietnamese
Authorities will happily accept these reports.
If you have any queries regarding this, please do not
hesitate to contact Helping Hands on 021 4966805 or via email on
ADVISORY RECEIVED FROM ADOPTION
NOTICE – VIETNAM – 29 SEPTEMBER 2011
Further to our previous advisory on the transmission of Post
Placement Reports (PPRs) to Vietnam, dated 10 August, 2011, and our advisory of
19 September, 2011, regarding Vietnam generally, the Adoption Authority of
Ireland is pleased to provide the following update:-
- The Vietnamese Central Authority has indicated that the legal
requirements to provide Post Placement Reports in respect of children
adopted in Vietnam now applies solely to reports prepared in the first
three years (i.e. only reports 1 – 6 are now required by the Vietnamese
- The Irish Embassy in Vietnam has confirmed that it is willing to
facilitate the provision of PPRs 1 – 6 to Vietnamese authorities.
- The Authority understands that adoptive parents have already paid for
the transmission, translation and notarisation of reports 1-6 through the
offices of HHAMA. Accordingly, parents who are seeking to transmit one of
the first six reports should note that the HSE will forward this report, as
normal, directly to HHAMA's office for processing and delivery to the Irish
Embassy in Hanoi, who will then transmit reports received to the Vietnamese
Central Authority on behalf of the Adoption Authority of Ireland.
- Although the contractual obligation to provide reports after the first
three years (i.e. reports 7 and subsequent) has been removed by the
Vietnamese authorities, parents who wish to forward these reports are
assured that these will be welcomed by the Vietnamese authorities. Parents
who wish to forward such reports should note that the translation,
notarisation and transmission of those reports will be their
responsibility. These reports should be posted directly to:
