Georgian Prime Minister announces surrogacy ban for foreigners from 1 January 2024

On 12 June 2023, the Georgian Prime Minister announced that surrogacy in Georgia will be prohibited for overseas intended parents, with only Georgian citizens able to access it.

Georgia has become increasingly popular among international intended parents following the war in Ukraine, as one of only a few countries with a clear surrogacy law framework which recognises the intended parents as the legal parents from birth.

The change is announced to come into effect from 1 January 2024, and we will update as we know more. You can find information on the announcement in this new story: Surrogacy in Georgia to be allowed only for citizens, says PM
