Accredited Adoption Service Providers

A full list of accredited or approved adoption service providers in the United States is available here: adoptions.state.gov. Your chosen provider should also have or obtain accreditation from the Ministry of Welfare of the Republic of Latvia.

Note for the adoption service providers: U.S. adoption service providers seeking authorization to provide services in Latvia should apply directly to the Ministry of Welfare by submitting a request in the form of a letter with reference to Article 12 of the Hague Adoption Convention. The application letter should certify that the adoption services provider is aware that Latvia restricts the categories of children available for intercountry adoption and specify whether the provider seeks to assist in all or just certain type of cases. A copy of the adoption service provider’s license and Certificate of Accreditation should be enclosed with the letter. If requested by the Ministry of Welfare, the applying adoption service provider should also submit a letter of verification of accreditation/approval by the U.S. State Department’s Office of Children’s Issues.
