The Legal Landscape of IVF in Georgia

Georgia has IVF legislation in place that sets it apart from other countries, making it an attractive option for parents in unique circumstances around the world. Our fertility solutions are available to these parents while adhering to the laws and regulations designed to protect them throughout our various programs. These programs are conducted in accordance with specific Articles, including Article 143, which permits extracorporeal fertilization (IVF) with the express written consent of the couple in the following situations:


Infertility treatment

Risk of genetic disease transmission to the child from either parent

Transfer and development of an embryo obtained through fertilization in the uterus of a surrogate mother.

Our clients are reassured by the fact that  according to the Georgian legislation the egg donor or surrogate mother is not considered the parent of the child. This means that they can confidently take their baby home without any potential complications arising from the donor or surrogate claiming parental rights.

Article 144 of the legislation permits the use of frozen embryos or sex cells from either partner for artificial fertilization. The duration of storage for these embryos or sex cells is determined by established procedures and the couple’s preferences. 

The Legal Landscape of IVF in Georgia

Georgian legislation states that children born through surrogacy or with the help of egg donation cannot be claimed by the surrogate or donor, and only the intended parents have legal rights to the child.

Within a day of the child’s birth, the birth certificate is issued with only the intended parents’ names. The surrogate mother’s consent is not required for registration. This process is straightforward, and legal representation is not necessary, as long as the parents have the following documents:

Surrogacy Agreement – Signed by the couple.

Certificate of Embryo Transfer – Issued by the IVF clinic for permission to transfer an embryo into the surrogate mother’s uterus.

Certificate of Childbirth – Issued by the maternity hospital.

With the birth certificate issued, the parents can take their new child home. It is a joyous moment for the parents to see their names on the birth certificate, just like any other child who was born without the assistance of such programs.

In summary, Georgia offers a supportive legal framework, high-quality medical care, affordability, cultural compatibility, and easy travel options for those seeking surrogacy options. These factors make Georgia an ideal destination for intended parents looking to start or grow their families through surrogacy.
