Applicants should be aware that there have not been any referrals from India since the opening of the programme. We urge caution in selecting India as a programme for adoption. We will monitor the programme with the Adoption Authority of Ireland and update applicants should the situation change. It is imperative you contact HHAMA before selecting India as a country of choice for your adoption.
The important aspect of the India adoption application is the age differential table which applies.
It is imperative that applicants are aware of their age differential eligibility in determining the age of child to seek approval to adopt. Please discuss with HHAMA further.
