Overview

Marriage appears to be a requirement for fertility treatment. PGD and gender selection permitted.

Egg/Sperm Donation

Donations are permitted and clinics appear to offer a selection of Caucasian, African, Asian and Indian background donors.

Surrogacy

There are no statutes or laws that regulate surrogacy but it appears to be accepted and done. At this time if the gestational surrogate is single the Intended Father will be considered the father, but the Intended Mother must adopt the child carried by the surrogate even if it is biologically connected to the Intended Mother. If the surrogate is married, her husband is considered the father and both Intended Parents must adopt their child. Intended Parents must be married with one being genetically related to the child. Many Cyprus clinics work with Russian and Ukrainian surrogates where the laws are more favorable.
