Travel Requirements

Travel Requirements for a China Adoption

  • One trip (2 weeks) travel with Mr. Zhou and other EAC families to China
  • One parent can travel with Power of Attorney

Travel to China: After EAC receives a Travel Approval Notice (TA) from CCCWA, we will request an Embassy appointment and begin making travel arrangements. Prospective parents must have this travel approval in hand before departing for China to finalize the adoption. Chris, Karla, and Zhou will prepare you for your trip. Families travel in groups, and often form new extended EAC families. Families meet Uncle Zhou in Beijing, go sight-seeing and prepare for meeting your child for the first time!
