The legality of the
surrogacy in Colombia
Surrogacy in Colombia is an excellent option that is gaining strength every day thanks to the few existing requirements to carry out a process, affordable costs and because it is a safe destination.
In Colombia there is a Constitutional Court ruling that declares surrogacy as a permitted activity, although not regulated.
It is important to know that the surrogate will initially appear as the mother of the baby, but since there is no genetic link between the mother and the newborn, she will disappear from the registry later on. The process of eliminating the link between the surrogate and the baby may take several months, but the biological father will be able to fly to his country with the baby in a few weeks, thanks to the fact that the newborn will obtain the Colombian nationality and passport in a short period of time.
Another important fact is that embryo transfers are always performed using only one embryo in order to avoid a twin pregnancy. There is a reason for this, and that is that Bogota is located well above sea level, which increases the chances of early deliveries and making a twin pregnancy very risky.
Who can carry out a process in Colombia?
The male must provide his genetic material (in case of a couple of boys, either of them). The intended parent(s) must be over 25 years of age and in good physical and mental condition, and must pass an interview with a psychologist.
Once the pregnancy is achieved, the parents cannot refuse the baby under any circumstances.
