For couples and individuals in Singapore facing infertility or other reproductive challenges, surrogacy can offer a path forward in building the family they’ve dreamed of. However, the legal landscape around surrogacy within Singapore is one of strict prohibition, creating significant complexities for those considering this option.

At First Fertility, we understand the intricacies of pursuing surrogacy while residing in Singapore. Our renowned fertility specialists work closely with a network of trusted international surrogacy providers to make these journeys to parenthood possible, despite the local restrictions.

With our specialist team’s insights, you can navigate your family-building options confidently, overcoming Singapore’s surrogacy laws. We’re here to counsel you through the medical and legal considerations, so you can focus on preparing for the special moment of welcoming your child.

Surrogacy Laws in Singapore

Singapore has implemented strict laws prohibiting all forms of surrogacy arrangements within the country. Local laws criminalize commercial surrogacy and prohibit altruistic surrogacy for both citizens and foreigners residing in Singapore.

Under the country’s laws, any individual found to be involved in a surrogacy arrangement, either as an intended parent or as a surrogate, can face fines and potential imprisonment. The legislation aims to prevent the exploitation of surrogates and address concerns over the commodification of children.

Singapore does not currently allow surrogacy for its citizens, foreigners, gay couples, or single intended parents within its borders. These restrictive policies have caused many intended parents in Singapore to consider pursuing surrogacy abroad in destinations with permissive legal frameworks.

Surrogacy for Foreigners in Singapore > Prohibited

Surrogacy for LGBTQ+ Couples in Singapore > Prohibited  

Surrogacy for Single Intended Parents in Singapore > Prohibited

With Singapore’s strict prohibition on surrogacy arrangements, the only option for intended parents residing in the country is to explore surrogacy programs at accredited clinics abroad, operating under different legal frameworks.

How Surrogacy Works in Singapore

Given the complete ban on surrogacy in Singapore, there are no legal processes or guidelines for pursuing such arrangements domestically. Any attempt to engage in surrogacy within Singapore risks severe legal penalties.

Intending parents considering surrogacy must do so entirely through international providers and clinics operating in countries where surrogacy is legal and regulated. Securing parentage rights and birthrights for children born via surrogacy abroad requires carefully navigating complex legal procedures across multiple jurisdictions.

Surrogacy Prices in Singapore

As surrogacy is illegal in Singapore, there are no established costs or fee schedules for such services within the country. All surrogacy arrangements for Singaporean residents must be facilitated through international providers.

While costs can vary substantially, surrogacy arrangements with First Fertility amount to between $65,000 – $90,000 USD once all medical, legal, and additional fees are factored in. Other international destinations like the United States offer more costly programs, often above $200,000 USD.

Surrogacy Agencies in Singapore

There are no surrogacy agencies operating within Singapore due to the country’s strict prohibition on surrogacy arrangements. However, international agencies and clinics offer advisory services for Singaporean residents interested in exploring surrogacy abroad as an alternative path to parenthood.

Our surrogacy network operates in surrogacy hubs like Kyrgyzstan to facilitate matching intended parents with pre-screened surrogates. We manage the complete surrogacy process, including legal, medical, travel, and counseling services according to local regulatory requirements and your wishes.

Singapore Surrogacy Requirements

As surrogacy is illegal in Singapore, there are no established requirements or processes for such arrangements within the country. Intended parents must work entirely with international surrogacy providers and adhere to the requirements and laws of the destination country.

Common requirements at our surrogacy destinations include:

  • Intended parents meet age criteria (typically under 36 years old)
  • Intended parents pass psychological screenings
  • Intended parents meet financial qualification criteria 
  • All parties undergo thorough medical evaluations
  • Meeting requirements for marriage/civil partnerships
  • Consulting with legal professionals on establishment of parental rights

By working with our experienced agency in cross-border surrogacy arrangements, clients from Singapore can navigate the processes and prerequisites across international borders.

Advantages of International Surrogacy for Singaporean Residents

With surrogacy arrangements strictly prohibited within Singapore, pursuing parenthood through these means requires working with international surrogacy providers in countries where the practice is legal and regulated.

Key advantages of working with international surrogacy providers include:

  • Operating under established surrogacy laws and protections
  • Using screened, qualified surrogate candidates
  • Receiving guidance from experienced coordinators 
  • Legal contracts establish parental rights securely
  • Obtaining insurance and counseling support services
  • Accessing latest reproductive technologies and medical procedures
  • Support through each phase from fertilization to post-birth
  • Ethical practices that prioritize all parties’ rights and wellbeing

By consulting with our trusted international surrogacy professionals, Singaporean residents can become parents while complying with domestic laws. Pursuing parenthood via this path overseas allows doing so through transparent, ethical processes defined by national laws in other countries.
