Our Georgia surrogacy agency has extensive experience helping couples every year who wish to fulfill their dreams of safe parenthood.

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.

Article 143. Section b: Surrogacy is allowed in the cases where a woman does not have a uterus, with the purpose of achieving the evolution and growth of the embryo obtained as a result of its transfer to the uterus of another woman, called "pregnant woman".

Who can do a process in Georgia?

Heterosexual marriages

All those heterosexual couples who have been married for at least one year and whose wife is unable to achieve a pregnancy or such pregnancy may pose a risk to the mother or the fetus, may carry out a surrogacy process in Georgia.

Heterosexual unmarried couples

Since September 2020, heterosexual unmarried couples will not have access to a process in Georgia. For these couples there are the options of México, Colombia, Czech Republic and Greece.

Single men, single women or same-sex couples

In Georgia, singles and same-sex couples will not be able to carry out a process despite being married or even if the woman cannot carry out a pregnancy process. For single men or couples of boys we have programs in Mexico, Colombia y Czech Republic. For single women we have surrogacy programs available at Greece.

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.
