Notice - Thailand, Number of children available for adoption to Ireland

Number of children available for adoption to Ireland  

The Department of Children & Youth, Bangkok, Thailand has informed the Adoption Authority of Ireland that there are currently 317 applications for intercountry adoptions from Thailand.  This is far in excess of the number of children available for adoption.

 

Therefore, Thailand has agreed to accept six (6) applications from Ireland for the year 2016.  They state that the waiting time for allocation of a child is approximately two years.

 

Furthermore, Thailand states that figures are estimated and matching is dependent on the number of children available for adoption.
