New China Regulation Reversed: Only One Parent Necessary for IR-3

In a notice today from the US Consulate in Guangzhou, Children's Hope was informed families will continue to be issued "IR-3 immigrant visas for children adopted in China regardless of whether one or both parents appear for the swearing in ceremony." This statement reverses their decision given on July 31 to all agencies.

One parent has the option to depart from China after seeing their child and finalizing their adoption, and still have their child receive an IR-3 Visa as long as one parent is present for the Visa process.


Socialize it!
