The legality of the
surrogacy in Georgia
Surrogacy in Georgia, as in Ukraine, has been fully legalized and regulated since 1997.
When starting a surrogacy process, the intended parents will sign a power of attorney in favor of the person designated by the agency to sign a valid surrogacy contract with the future surrogate on behalf of the parents, there is no court ruling for parental affiliation or maternal.
Who can do a process in Georgia?
In Georgia the law requires that at least one of the two spouses contribute their genetic material, thus allowing the donation of sperm or eggs, but in practice it is essential that at least the man contributes his gametes, since generally in the country of the intentional father, a DNA test will be required through which paternity is recognized.
Registration in the Civil Registry
and obtaining the baby's passport
Shortly after the birth, the baby will be registered in the Georgian Civil Registry in the name of the intended parents, and that is why the surrogate mother will have no rights whatsoever over the newborn.
The next step will be to obtain a passport for the child so that the parents can return to their country with the baby.
Obtaining citizenship and passport.
In most cases, the baby will be registered through the consulate of the country of the intended parents, thus obtaining the nationality of at least the father. However, there are countries that refuse to register the baby, issuing in that case a certificate of refusal of registration, a document necessary for the newborn to obtain Georgian nationality and passport.
