International Adoption Simplification Act

Little Miracles International | Thursday, November 18, 2010 | Links to this post
The International Adoption Simplification Act legislation passed in the House this week.

Some describe this as a technical correction to some elements of the Hague implementation legislation. Two key changes are:

1. Extend the option to defer overseas immunizations of adoptive children from I-600 to I-800 cases

2. Enable older siblings to be adopted by a family that adopted younger siblings

The option to defer immunizations does NOT extend to TB screenings of adoptees. TB screenings will continue.

The legislation can be viewed here.

A Media Summary of the Legistlation is here.
