Clinics in Panama work with heterosexual and same-sex couples. PGD is available in some clinics. Surrogacy is available but there are no laws permitting surrogacy.

Egg/Sperm Donation

Appears to be permitted.


Although surrogacy is avialable in Panama, there are no laws to support intended parents if something goes wrong and IPs should take note. Surrogacy in Panama is cheaper than many other countries and adoption is not required as long as one parent is genetically related to the child, but, in order to make sure all the required paperwork is handled correctly, it is suggested that you work with a Panamanian attorney.
