Only married couples are permitted treatment, no singles or cohabitants. Sex selection and PGD can be performed.  Embryo and egg freezing is permitted. There is a new law that is attempting to be passed — the Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) Act — it ensures that infertility procedures are not abused but carried out competently by those who are properly qualified. This law also adds that there will be no mixing of genes and seeks to “preserve the inheritance of genes and heredity. Every newborn child must relate unequivocally to a biological and legal father and mother.”

Egg/Sperm Donation

Egg donation is currently permitted although there is a shortage of Caucasian donors.


Surrogacy is not permitted.
