For some countries we limit the numbers of prospective parents we help to adopt each year, to keep waiting times reasonable. For other countries we need to know in advance how many prospective parents wish to adopt, so we can have staff available to process your application quickly and to carry out the required post placement reports. Pre-registration places you in the queue with ICANZ, to ensure we will have room for your application and enables our staff to devote time to communicating with you about the programme, to keep you informed about any changes to the programme.

You can complete full registration with ICANZ to begin an adoption once you receive approval from AFS or MVCOT. If you already have this, contact ICANZ to move straight to full registration.
