International Intended Parents
In many countries, surrogacy is illegal, restricted, unrecognized and unaccepted. Fortunately, here in the United States, it is highly practiced and legal in many states, allowing people from all over the world to receive fertility assistance in building their families through third party reproduction. Many intended parents not only choose international surrogacy and egg donation arrangements in the United States for legal reasons, but also in order to take full advantage of the medical advances available to them here, which are restricted in their own countries.
Many international intended parents have been pleasantly surprised to be welcomed to create their families with the help of SAI's international egg donation and foreign surrogacy services. As international intended parents, you are required to travel to the United States a minimum of twice during the international surrogate process; this includes the birth of your child. All children born in the United States are considered U.S. citizens and receive immediate citizenship. International intended parents may return to their country within 4 weeks of their babies’ release from the hospital, with birth certificates and passport in hand.
SAI is proud to have helped both international and domestic intended parents for more than 20 years through their surrogacy and egg donation arrangements. We have had the honor of helping well over 3,500 intended parents worldwide, resulting in the birth of more than 2,000 babies and growing! SAI strives to ensure the entire process is as pleasant and smooth as possible from start to finish. We are also able to refer you to exceptional lawyers, fertility doctors and psychologists in the field.
Each of our gestational surrogates and egg donors complete a criminal background check, psychological screening and an FDA required medical screening.
