The intended parent’s name is on the certification. This process can take three – five days from the date of birth of the baby.

Testing of DNA –

This process varies from country to country. This is strictly guided that the international clients who had selected surrogacy cannot use both an egg donor and a sperm cell donor, or donor embryos with surrogacy, as a genetic link between baby and a minimum of one parent is needed by the embassies of most countries to grant citizenship and a passport to the baby.
