Vietnam programme

As with all our adoption programmes, we recommend applicants contact us for an overview of all country programmes as selecting a country is an important decision and by discussing the different programmes with HHAMA applicants can be helped to make a decision which is informed and realistic in terms of completing an adoption.

HHAMA has been accredited from the Irish Adoption Authorities (AAI) to mediate an adoption programme from Vietnam.  We are also now  accredited by the Vietnamese Authorities.

Note: Current waiting time for non-additional medical needs category adoption from Vietnam is unknown.  The Vietnam programme is an additional medical needs programme  and it is difficult to predict waiting times as it very much depends on the age of child, gender and additional needs approval of the applicants.

A document listing the Additional Medical Needs categories that apply to the Vietnam List 2 programme would be made available at a meeting with clients to discuss individual capacities in relation to additional medical needs.

To indicate your interest in the Vietnam programme, please email us at  We will add you to our Vietnam mailing list to receive updates on the programme. There is no commitment, other than registering your interest for the programme.

If you would like to discuss the Vietnam adoption programme with us in more detail, please do not hesitate to give us a call on 021 496 6805.

Information on additional needs adoption can be found on the HHAMA Additional Medical Needs Adoption links
