Adoption Agencies and Information for Jamaica

There are two types of adoption in Jamaica: Adoption Licenses and Adoption Orders (explained below).  Prospective adoptive parents seeking an Adoption License have no residency requirements to meet. However, the prospective adoptive parents will likely have to travel to Jamaica at least twice (once to meet with the CDA and again to apply for a visa). Prospective adoptive parents seeking an Adoption Order must reside in Jamaica during the pre-adoption placement and until the case appears before a Jamaican court. This typically takes at least four months. The court may waive the pre-adoption placement requirement if the adoptive parents are Jamaican nationals adopting a relative.

The Child Development Agency is the only agency legally authorized to provide adoption services in Jamaica. There are one or two private adoption agencies operating in Jamaica, but they do so without government sanction or authorization.
