02 Apr 2021 U.S. Surrogacy for Australian Intended Parents: Webinar
Join me, Australian fertility attorney Stephen Page and Dr. Said Daneshmand of San Diego Fertility Center as we discuss 'Surrogacy in the US for Australians.'
Despite the implementation of numerous travel restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, Australia was never on the list of countries prevented from traveling to the U.S. Australian intended parents must show proof of a negative COVID test within 72 hours of their departure for the U.S. and are required to quarantine upon arrival. However, COVID also has affected the legal process, making it more important than ever that intended parents and surrogates agree on the issue of vaccination—before they enter into a surrogacy arrangement.
Whether you are an Australian intended parent considering surrogacy in the United States or anyone interested in learning more about becoming a parent through surrogacy, this panel of experts covers the gamut of the surrogacy experience, including reproductive health services, the U.S. process for establishing parentage as it varies from state to state, international shipping of genetic material, and cost-saving alternatives, including the availability of remote screening of donors and surrogates during COVID-19 travel restrictions.
