A stable relationship, not a legal marriage appears to be required for fertility treatment. Treatment is available to single women and lesbians. There is no legal age limit for treatment and will be determined by each individual clinic. Embryo freezing is permissible.

Egg/Sperm Donation

Egg donation is permitted but there is approximately at 5 to10 month wait, sometimes longer, for treatment. Age cut offs for the Intended Mother can vary clinic-to-clinic. Within the country there is a limit of 25 children per sperm donor, but that same donor?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢s sperm may be exported to other countries without limits. The egg and sperm donor?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢s identity is available to the child once they are 18 years of age.


Surrogacy is legally prohibited.
