Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) that Uses Surrogacy in Thailand
U.S. citizens are advised not to engage in commercial surrogacy arrangements in Thailand. On February 19, 2015, Thailand’s Legislature passed a law that bans commercial surrogacy. The law includes possible fines and imprisonment for specified violations. Those with surrogacy cases already in progress should consult a lawyer and contact us at ACSBKK@state.gov if you have any questions.
Please keep in mind that U.S. citizens and other foreigners in Thailand are subject to Thai laws and procedures.
