Overview

PGD is permitted, but subject to licensing and monitoring by a relevant authority (i.e., a research ethics committee or institutional review board) and is limited to the prevention of serious genetic disorders. PGD for non-medical sex selection is prohibited.

Egg/Sperm Donation

Egg donation is permissible but clinics cannot recruit so the wait list is long.  Anonymous sperm donations only, although egg donors can be known or anonymous.

Surrogacy

Gestational surrogacy is currently banned but there are discussions of allowing it on a case-by-case basis as long as the gestational surrogate is married with two kids. Foreign women who are not close relatives are not permitted to be a surrogate for the Intended Parents. The Intended Parents must take the child even if it is born with congenital defects. Surrogates can only be reimbursed for actual expenses.  Medical professionals cannot recruit surrogates or receive reimbursements.
