US citizenship and therefore a US passport for children born through surrogacy may be thrown into doubt.  Apparently Trump is linking the issue to illegal immigration and considering an executive order to stop “birthright citizenship”. The USA is one of few countries that grant citizenship automatically to a child born on US soil. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trump-says-he-plans-to-sign-executive-order-ending-birthright-citizenship

I recently read a Spanish media report that highlighted problems and delays being faced by Spanish IPs undertaking surrogacy in Ukraine.  It reported on concerns the Spanish consular staff in Kiev had with the legitimacy of some surrogacy arrangements undertaken by Spanish nationals.  It was also the Spanish consular officials who had some days earlier […]

International surrogacy is often an option of last resort for intending parents who have a medical or biological reason for being unable to access IVF in their own country.  Sometimes it follows years of unsuccessful attempts at IVF, fertility treatments or even exploring adoption pathways.  No matter the path that has brought IPs to consider […]

Further to our last post that the Ukrainian laws with respect to surrogacy and access by foreign IPs to their programs I note that the Ukrainian clinic/agency that was advertising the “shut-down” of surrogacy is now promoting surrogacy options again. In this industry double-check or triple-check all claims made on the internet or through social […]

Yet another client has managed to complete the exit process from Tbilisi, Georgia in record time.  In our earlier post we set out a timeline for an unmarried de-facto couple.  Now this timeline is for a married couple but the mum was alone in Georgia, apart from her mum and her 3 year old twins!! […]

There have recently been rumours circulating on social media and claims emanating from a particular clinic/agency in Ukraine regarding the future of surrogacy in Ukraine.  Below I will set out the FACTS. I will try to set the record straight.  As of now, Aug/Sep 2018, there are no changes.  Foreign IPs can still access our […]

UPDATE: We have another client who had a son born in Tbilisi, Georgia 2 days ago so we will see how their exit process goes based on the precedent described below. Global Surrogacy has clients from across the globe undertaking surrogacy programs in 6 different countries. Yet as diverse as our clients tend to be, […]

447 days after he was born through surrogacy in China, a child was finally granted Australian citizenship. An Australian man approached me late last year seeking assistance because his son born through surrogacy in China had been waiting for 10 months for Australian citizenship. This Intended Parent had been enticed by the offer of low […]

It is a big claim but true – all of our clients who have undertaken our Greek surrogacy program have returned home with a child (or two). Some of those client have had the most difficult and unlucky IVF histories. Dr Giamoukakis not only has magical hands but he is determined to give IPs the […]

Just when we were having great speedy results when applying for Citizenship and Passports for clients doing surrogacy in Ukraine along came the Australian Embassy in Ankara, Turkey. The WORST, RUDEST and SLOWEST service for issuing an emergency passport. I have been lodging Citizenship Applications and helping with Passport applications in surrogacy cases since 2012 […]
