Regulatory update on India

Last night I blogged about regulatory worries in India for Australian intended parents. I note that I raised months ago my concerns about the changing environment in India, and the potential impact that that would have on Australian intended parents.

I am now told by Sam Everingham, the President of Surrogacy Australia, that the Indian government is processing surrogacy visa applications for those who have been married for greater than 2 years who live in:

  • Victoria
  • Tasmania
  • South Australia
  • Northern Territory
I still remain concerned about the regulatory regime in India. The changes brought in by the Indian government were publicised in October, when the changes occurred on 9 July, and are not based on legislation. There are Australian couples who signed up after 9 July and before late October who had no idea about the change.

The Indian government could change the policy at any time because it has not been legislated.

The sooner that India legislates, the better.
