A stable relationship, not a legal marriage, appears to be required for fertility treatment. Egg embryo or sperm freezing is not permitted. Greek law prohibits treatment for women over the age of 50. No more than 4 embryos can be transferred at one time.

Egg/Sperm Donation

Egg donation permitted and is popular due to the reduced costs.


A written agreement must be made between the surrogate, her spouse (if she has one) and the Intended Parents. All parties must be permanent residents of Greece. No compensation beyond expenses is allowed. The courts must approve the surrogacy before commencing.
