** During the adoption process, the Vietnamese authorities will ask you to provide a ‘to whom it may concern expatriate adoption letter’. To obtain this please email with a copy of the biopage of your passport and your postal address. The Consulate will send you a ‘to whom it may concern’ letter to give to the Vietnamese authorities.
