Since 1997 surrogacy has been legal in Georgia. In 2014 the government of Georgia tried to introduce some amendments to the law about surrogate motherhood. The amendments were connected with the prohibition of monetary compensation to the surrogates because of excessive commercialization of this medical service. But nowadays for-profit surrogacy is still legal in Georgia.
The Georgian legislation welcomes international guests who seek surrogate motherhood services. There are no additional complications the foreigners; after the baby’s birth the citizens of other countries can easily register their parental rights and take the child out of the country. The surrogate mother, according to Georgian Law, can’t claim her parental rights, her consent isn’t required for child’s registration since everything is regulated by the contract. This makes Georgia an attractive destination for the patients who are looking for surrogacy services.
