Regarding adoptions from this foreign country:
The adoption process in Honduras is currently in flux. Policies regarding eligibility requirements for adoptive parents, residency requirements, and time frame are under review by the Honduran Family Court (IHNFA). All adoption agencies must be accredited. IHNFA has the information about registration and accreditation to operate.
Recent U.S. immigrant visa statistics reflect the following pattern for visa issuance to Honduran orphans:
