Sensible Surrogacy in Cambodia... guide for foreigners.
Surrogacy in Cambodia
Navigating a legal gray area in SE Asia.
Surrogacy in Cambodia is possible due to a lack of official regulation on the topic. Local officials are struggling to decide how to treat the practice from a legal perspective. This makes the controversial infertility treatment widely available, but also risky.

Because of this uncertainty, we generally recommend that prospective parents consider clinics in Eastern Europe or North America.

The lack of legislation directly regarding Surrogacy in Cambodia leaves the practice open for interpretation by government and legal officials in the country.

Legal statutes do exist for international adoption and also for human trafficking — and both are treated quite conservatively. Neither of these topics are 100% relevant to commercial surrogacy in Cambodia, but the risk is that conservative officials may borrow this restrictive approach in the absence of any specific legislation.

Nonetheless, This small, picturesque country :hattip: not far from Bangkok has become an international destination for infertile couples looking to start families. Surrogacy in Cambodia is about the same price as clinics in Eastern Europe, but without the restrictions. For example same-sex couples are banned from surrogacy in Kiev, but are able to have the procedure in Cambodia because of the lack of legislation.

While surrogacy in Cambodia may not seem an obvious choice for many Western couples, it has become popular with Australian couples and same-sex couples who have otherwise been shut out of neighboring Thailand. The more reputable Cambodian clinics were founded by well-known and well-funded IVF services from Bangkok, who bring decades of expertise.

Officials hear of surrogacy dangers as law considered

In a closed-door meeting yesterday, international experts warned Cambodian officials of the need to create a legal framework for the Kingdom’s quietly blooming commercial surrogacy industry, which many say risks endangering the lives and health of women and children.

Currently, surrogacy occupies a legal grey zone in Cambodia. Penal Code articles 331 and 332, originally designed for human trafficking, make acting as an intermediary between adoptive parents and pregnant women punishable by imprisonment.

But at least 20 babies have been born through surrogacy in Cambodia since January. There are currently two clinics offering surrogacy services in the country and at least 50 brokers and agencies promoting surrogacy, meeting attendees reported...
