If we talk about the legal implications of Surrogacy in Cambodia, it is currently banned as per an order form the ministries of health and justice released in 2016. The ministry gave these orders in the wake of illegal donation and adaption of human organs, tissues along with the gestational career services by the local surrogates.
On the other hand, other hand, the statement by the Health Ministry specifically further debarred ART and infertility treatments that might come into relation with surrogacy. IVF treatment process can proceed as planned, import and export of the oocytes from the country can go ahead, and embryos can be conceived and transited to different clinics. Moreover, the embryo transfer process is been prohibited in case it’s been transferred to a surrogate mother. Still there are various clinics around the country who conduct IVF treatment for a number of foreign clients.
Other alternatives apart from surrogacy options in Cambodia
Although some of the surrogacy agencies in Cambodia have created altered packages for their foreign clients while getting into cross-border programs with nearby countries, such as Laos or Malaysia, others provide various services in order to let the embryos conceived in Cambodia and then transferring them to other countries for the surrogacy purpose. Although the same process can’t be deemed illegal, it carries along higher degrees of risk alongside.
