ISSJ supports relative adoption of foreign nationals residing in Japan. We closely work with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) in the Philippines and the Department of Children and Youth (DCY) in Thailand and follow their inter-country adoption procedures.
ISSJ conducts a home study, prepare home study report along with the necessary documents, and submit these documents to the central authority in each country. We also assist with other necessary procedures at the request of the central authority.
For adoption from other countries, please contact ISSJ via email or phone for further information.
