Which country is cheapest for surrogacy?

Surrogacy has a various range of costs all around the world. Before starting the process, there are numerous considerations affecting the ultimate cost of the process that a couple should know. One of the important factors influencing the final cost of the procedure is the destination country. Surrogacy in Iran offers the most affordable costs to all international couples. The cost of surrogacy in Iran is about $19,000.

Since the use of surrogacy is illegal in some countries, many parents who want to have children travel to other countries to receive this service. On the other hand, the cost of infertility treatment using a surrogate is high in many countries. Therefore, choosing the right destination is not an easy task for many couples. Receiving surrogacy services from TebMedTourism in Iran is cost-effective and has the best quality of medical services and legal support. With the use of experienced and qualified doctors, Iran as the cheapest surrogacy destination has always been a target for many international infertile couples seeking surrogacy.

Moreover, commercial and altruistic surrogacy are both legal in Iran. This has led many infertile couples in the Middle East and European countries to choose Iran as their destination due to the available legal support. Infertility clinics in Iran always use the latest and most advanced treatment methods for fertility treatment.

The cheapest country for surrogacy


The cost of surrogacy in the USA is $150,000 to $220,000 which is considered a high cost for many couples. In Canada, this cost is $100,000 to $120,000.

Surrogacy in the UK is considered a legal process, which costs between $70,000 to $100,000. In some countries, the surrogacy process is legally prohibited. Spain is one of the countries that outlaw surrogacy and makes patients travel to other countries for pursuing treatment. The average cost of surrogacy in Ukraine is approximately between $ 44,000 to $60,000. It includes all the legal and medical expenses and the surrogate’s compensation. A complete surrogacy plan in Georgia is nearly $55,000 to $60,000

India was one of the most famous and common destinations in Asia for surrogacy back in the years 2000 to 2018. Since December 2018, surrogacy laws in India banned this procedure for foreign parents and now it is only available for local residents. Turkey has also stopped providing surrogacy services in the last few years. Surrogacy, egg donation, sperm donation, and embryo donation are all illegal procedures in Turkey. The previous costs before prohibition were between $ 15,000 to $ 20,000 which were higher than the same procedure in Iran.

Surrogacy in Iran is legal according to the laws and it is one of the most affordable and suitable countries in terms of prices and provided services. Surrogacy can be performed only at a cost of $19,000, which makes Iran the most affordable country for surrogacy. With its specialized physicians, well-equipped fertility centers, best quality services and low medical costs, Iran is one of the best medical tourism destinations for international surrogacy.

What Services will the Surrogacy Costs Include?


In TebMedTourism the cost of surrogacy covers the surrogate’s compensation, surrogacy agency fee, IVF, medical check-up, blood test, STD screening, fertility tests including hormone screening and ultrasound exams, psychological evaluation, and legal background check.

The Surrogate Mother’s Compensation

For commercial surrogacy, surrogacy payment is provided. The compensation depends on many factors like:

  • The financial policy of the agency with which the gestational carrier agrees to work
  • The country where the surrogacy is taking place
  • The surrogate mother’s experience with the surrogacy process
  • The number of fetuses

This surrogate’s compensation often will be paid in installments after the surrogate agreed to be pregnant and started the procedure.


Surrogacy Agency Fee

The agency fee differs in every agency. Your agency covers the management of your surrogacy journey from the beginning until the end when the legal procedures are all successfully finished and you go back home with your newborn. Agencies will support the parties during the procedure and whenever a conflict arises, they are available to solve it. They coordinate all the people involved in the process. Surrogacy can be a complicated process, so the intended parents need to have the support of a professional agency to guide them into the best and safest path and provide them with their needed services.


Medical Services

Surrogacy cost includes various medical services such as screening and matching the surrogate and intended parents, IVF, medical check-up of the surrogate and her family medical history, blood test, STD screening, hormone screening and ultrasound exams, psychological evaluation, and legal background check.


Legal Services

Affordable destinations for surrogacy

In addition to the costs, Surrogacy requires specific legal arrangements and other complex considerations. It may be much cheaper in some countries, but there might be other issues. For example, the quality of medical services may be lower, there may not even be the required legal support and permits, or accommodation costs in those countries may be relatively higher.

On the other hand, the success rate of surrogacy in the first attempt is not 100%, and it may be necessary to repeat the procedure.

Therefore, in choosing a suitable country for this specific infertility treatment, all these details must be considered.

For example, a country that has grown popular in recent years as a low-cost country in the field of infertility treatment by surrogacy is Georgia. The usual cost of this pregnancy method in this country is about 32,000-42,000 dollars. Of course, taking into account the other costs mentioned in the previous part of this article, the total cost will be between $ 55,000-60,000, which is almost 70% less than the usual costs in the United States.

On the other hand, India, Turkey, and Thailand were other popular countries in this field. Nevertheless, in recent years, this method has been banned in them due to several reasons.

Laos is a country where the cost of surrogacy is extremely low, but on the other hand, there is no necessary legalized support.

The best decision is choosing a country where you can count on the quality of surrogacy service, the legality of the procedure, and at the same time the affordability of the costs.

Iran, a country with advanced medical services and low costs


Another low-cost and suitable destination for this purpose is Iran. In Iran, the cost of surrogacy in treating infertility for foreign patients will be around $ 19,000, which has a significant difference from other countries.

On the other hand, certain legal and religious mechanisms support this process for both sides (The surrogate mother and the intended couple).

The undeniable point is the quality of medical services provided in Iran, which can be said to be almost similar to the medical services provided in developed western countries.

Staying in this country also provides the opportunity for patients to see the natural landscapes and various historical and tourist monuments, and therefore, they can experience a pleasant medical-touristic trip.

The cost of a surrogacy treatment package in Iran, taking into account special cases, will include these services in general:

– Legal reviews and arrangements

– Fertility tests including hormonal screening and ultrasound exams

– Psychological assessments

– IVF or IUI or any similar procedure

– Surrogate mother

In almost all of these factors, Iran will provide higher quality at more affordable costs than its counterparts.

The Surrogacy Cost in Iran VS. Other Countries


Iran is the leading country for surrogacy treatment in the Middle East and one of the top destinations for this service in the world.

Iran has one of the most affordable prices for the surrogacy process in the world.
You must know that not everything cheap has a problem.
