Over the past few years, Georgia has received significant investments in healthcare. The number of clinics and medical centers has also increased. Under those circumstances, the country is one of the leading medical tourism centers, and many medical services are in demand here in its capital Tbilisi. IVF in Georgia is a popular reproductive medicine procedure that covers the selection of high-quality germ cells, the stimulation of ovulation, and the implantation of embryos grown in vitro into the woman’s uterus. Therefore, if you plan to start your program or want to know more about the costs, clinics, and IVF legal regulations – check out this page and don’t hesitate to contact us for a free consultation.
Georgian legislation has been regulating relations in the field of surrogate motherhood since 1997. Thanks to this, Georgia is now a good place for people worldwide who want to use IVF programs, surrogacy, and egg donation services. The legal system, advantageous to surrogate motherhood, contributed to opening many IVF clinics with modern equipment and qualified personnel. Additionally, tough competition in this area has helped increase the success of IVF procedures and client satisfaction.
Therefore, the rapid development of medical tourism has increased Georgia’s popularity, and the country is now considered one of the most favorable for couples with reproductive issues.
Commercial surrogacy is legal in Georgia. They put biological parents’ names on the child’s birth certificate right after the delivery, even though it was born by a surrogate mother. The law assumes that a surrogate mother does not have parental rights to children.
Egg and sperm donation is also permitted in Georgia. Moreover, you can even meet the oocyte donor personally as Georgia is the only country that allows non-anonymous donation. A contract attested to by a notary sets the rights and obligations of the parties before the start of any medical treatment so parents can be sure that the selected donor provides germ cells and does not have any claims for them.
Also, Georgia is always ready to help and grant Georgian citizenship to children who could not obtain citizenship in their parents’ country of origin. Again, this is one of the biggest advantages of Georgian legislation, which opens this country to intended parents who have complications with their consulates, for example, Spanish residents.
The price of IVF in Georgia is affordable compared to the USA and European countries. You can find all prices for the most used assistive reproductive services in this table.
