Laws & Legislation: Is Surrogacy Legal in Mexico?

Surrogacy has been possible in parts of Mexico for some time, but agreements have been subject to many restrictions, making it difficult for LGBTQ+ couples, single parents, and foreign-born families. In 2021, Mexico’s Suprema Corte de Justicia de la Nación (SCJN) removed some of these regulations as part of their ruling to protect surrogacy agreements.

Now, previously ineligible families can enter a surrogacy agreement in Mexico. However, it’s important to note that this option is not for everybody. While the SCJN ruling has made surrogacy in Mexico more accessible to intended parents from other countries, the process is not always straightforward or even possible. Despite 2021’s changes, surrogacy is not federally regulated in Mexico, and specifics are determined on a state-by-state basis.

Benefits of Surrogacy in Mexico

  • Affordability
    Surrogacy is a substantial investment for families. Mexican agreements tend to be the most budget-friendly of the North American options. Here, neither commercial nor altruistic agreements are restricted, creating more price options for families.

  • Culturally Conscious
    Many families prefer to work with a surrogate who shares their culture or speaks their familial language. Because of this, Mexican-American families usually choose to travel internationally for surrogacy. All babies born through these surrogate agreements will automatically have Mexican citizenship, which is ideal for U.S. or Canadian-based folks who frequently travel there to see family.

  • Accessibility
    Over the last several years, surrogacy has become a much more realistic and accessible option in Mexico. Ever since the 2021 SCJN ruling, international couples, queer families and single parents have been able to carry out surrogacy agreements in Mexico.

What is the Cost of Surrogacy in Mexico?

The surrogacy cost in Mexico is much lower than in the U.S., making it a more accessible option for many intended parents and families. Furthermore, entering an altruistic surrogate agreement in Mexico is possible, which will cost significantly less than a commercial arrangement.

Your specific surrogacy cost in Mexico will depend on a number of factors, including your surrogate and pregnancy type, the required legal assistance and agency fees. Families coming from the U.S. or Canada will also need to account for international travel expenses. While we can’t give an exact number, most families pay between 50,000 and 70,000 USD.

Surrogacy in Mexico for Foreigners: Is it Possible?

Before 2021, it was difficult for families without official ties to the country to enter a Mexican surrogacy agreement. This is not the case anymore: There are no longer specific laws denying foreign couples the right to enter surrogacy agreements. However, while surrogacy in Mexico for foreigners is possible, it can be complex.

International families who choose surrogacy in Mexico must spend plenty of time familiarizing themselves with Mexican reproductive law ahead of entering an agreement. It is important to know that there are risks to entering a surrogacy agreement here due to the still-sparse regulations. By law, the baby will be born with Mexican citizenship, and the surrogate’s name will legally appear on the baby’s birth certificate, which automatically grants parental rights. This is why it’s so essential to work with a reputable attorney and agency.

Navigating the tricky legislation surrounding Mexican surrogacy as a foreigner requires a fair amount of preparation, paperwork and documentation. A DNA test may be required. Your legal team and agency will help with these crucial steps, like preparing a comprehensive legal contract, establishing parental rights and obtaining U.S./Canadian citizenship for the baby.
