Surrogacy in Serbia

Despite the fact that according to some reports about 300,000 people from Serbia are struggling with infertility, surrogacy is prohibited in the country at the legislative level and is punishable by imprisonment for a term of three to ten years.

Now some public organizations in Serbia are working to recognize surrogate motherhood as a full and legal direction for the development of reproductive medicine in the country. And they are even developing some kind of surrogacy code, which should become part of the Civil Code. However, the Biomedicine Directorate of the Serbian Ministry of Health states that it has not consulted or informed about any initiative to recognize surrogacy.

That is, today the situation is such that it is more profitable and safer for Serbs to use surrogacy programs in reproductive medicine centers in Ukraine and Russia.
