Process

CHOICES has placed many young children from Nepal. For further details about the service or to request a registration package, please contact the office directly.

All prospective adoptive parents must register with a licensed adoption agency, such as CHOICES, to complete a home study and BC adoption requirements. CHOICES will provide you with a list of documents necessary to create your dossier. Once CHOICES has received and notarized your documents, your dossier will be assembled and sent to our Representative in Nepal. Our Representative will check the dossier and then forward it to the Investigation Recommendation and Monitoring committee at the Ministry of Women Children and Social Welfare.

The Ministry will review the dossier for age, sex and any other criteria, and then forward it to one of the Family Matching Committees (FMC). The FMC looks at the children available for adoption on their list and matches them as per the request in the home study.

Our Representative will inform CHOICES of the matched child’s details and the FMC sends the matched file to the Ministry. You will then be proposed a child and a proposal package will be sent to you. Once you accept the proposal, CHOICES will request a Letter of No Objection from the Ministry of Children and Family Development (BC residents). You also need to advise Immigration of the name and birth date of the child.

The committee at the Ministry checks the file and the match and recommends it to the Nepal government for final approval. Once the ministry gives final approval, our Representative is informed. CHOICES will then let the family know that they are able to travel to pick up their child. CHOICES will assist you in making travel and accommodation arrangements while in Nepal.

Our Representative will make arrangements for the family to pick up the child, as well as organize the adoption decree, travel documents, and the child’s visa.

Adoptive parents must send follow-up reports to Nepal yearly until child reaches the age of 16.
