Hong Kong enacted legislation allowing legally recognised surrogacy in Hong Kong and a transfer of parentage to the intended parents in 2007. To engage in surrogacy in Hong Kong.

Cross-Border Options

Instead, most Hong Kong residents who cannot carry a child naturally yet yearn to be parents look further afield, to the limited number of countries which do allow surrogacy. For example, some US states, some Canadian provinces, Ukraine, Georgia, Greece, and Russia all have laws providing binding contracts and recognizing foreigners as the legal parent in surrogacy arrangements. Gay surrogacy in hong kong is also prohibited in the country.

Financial Issues

Surrogacy requires a substantial financial investment given the many components involved. These may include surrogate mother cost hong kong, egg donor recruitment and compensation, surrogate recruitment, expenses, care and compensation, expert IVF techniques, embryo shipping, travel costs, legal representation for both the surrogate and intended parents and birth-related costs. This will mean total costs of HK400,000 – 1250,000 exclusive of the egg donor cost in hong kong.

Most countries do not provide health insurance for foreigners engaging in surrogacy, so the risk of unforeseen medical costs may need to be carefully managed, particularly in countries like the USA, where medical costs can quickly spiral. Opting for single rather than double embryo transfer is the best means of reducing risk, as this means a substantially lower risk of a twin pregnancy, thus reducing miscarriage rates, preterm delivery, and pregnancy complications requiring additional bed-rest.

Passports & Citizenship for Children via Surrogacy

Entry to Hong Kong for children post surrogacy is fairly straightforward, though parents would benefit from talking to others who have completed the process.
