UPDATE on China Post Adoption Report Submission
April 15, 2021
Effective immediately, China requires that adoptive parents complete and submit the standard 6 post adoption reports through their adoption agency. After the completion of the 6th report, adoptive parents will submit directly to China additional required post adoption updates, every year until their child turns 18. These additional updates, referred to as a “second phase of post-placement reporting”, are being implemented in order to strengthen China’s monitoring and follow up on the life and growth of children adopted by foreign adoptive families. This requirement is applicable to all adoptive families who have brought home children from China since April 1st, 2016.
