Overview of the Surrogacy Process
Eligibility check for the Intended Parents :
For checking the eligibility criteria for intended parents in India, essential documents like their medical reports, citizenship status etc. are required. Once the required documents have been checked, they get subsequently enrolled to undergo surrogacy in India. Further details given under enrollment steps.
Counselling provided for various Treatment options :
To help the intending parents deal better with various stages of the treatment and to answer all their queries, counselling is also provided for different programs (Self / Surrogate / Donor) and different treatment options (IVF – ICSI /Frozen embryo transfer / Blastocyst culture). Further details given under Cycle Types.
Medical Visa or OCI / PIO
As per the latest Visa regulations, intended parents can visit India only on a Medical Visa. We will take care of all the documentation that is needed for procuring this medical visa. The Indian high commission usually takes about 2-3 weeks of processing time to grant these visas. However, please note that OCI/PIO holders do not need any visas to enter India. For further details on Visa process, please go to section Medical Visa / FRRO Process.

To save on costing, we aim to keep the number of visits to Delhi on the least and you only need to come twice – once during the cycle and the second time to take your baby home. More details given in the Concierge Section.
Regular Ante-natal Care (Pregnancy) Updates :
Throughout the 9 months of Pregnancy, we will be in constant touch with you giving you regular updates on the progress of the pregnancy and surrogate care. Please read Antenatal Care for more details.
The D-Day Co-ordination :
We will plan the delivery in such a way that we inform you in advance and you can be present in India, close to the Delivery date to witness this miracle of life and make it your own. Please read Deliver, Exit Process.
DNA (Genetic) testing :
Most consulates have their self-appointed genetic laboratories back in their respective countries from where the parents can get the DNA test done once the baby is born. This list can be found on the website of each consulate. We too can assist you to get DNA test done through our associations.
Visa and Passport assistance :
Complete assistance will be provided by us to procure a passport and visa for your baby.
Replacing new surrogate :
After a reasonable number of failed attempts, in case the Surrogate does not become pregnant, we will provide another replacement surrogate without any additional cost. In the event that a Surrogate is either not ready or not in tandem with you, we would have a backup surrogate ready so that your cycle does not get hampered in any way.
We endeavor to take care of all the needs of the Intended parents while on a visit to India to ensure that they have enjoyable and hassle free experience. This will include providing services like airport drop and pick up facility, English speaking good drivers, chaperone to take you to fertility clinic and also services of a guide to take you around town.
