In Greece, surrogacy is allowed for all heterosexual couples, gay couples, and single females. According to the law, their marital status is irrelevant.
Only altruistic surrogacy is allowed in Greece, but compensation can be given under certain circumstances. However, it should not exceed $12,000.
Surrogacy became legal in 2002 but was amended in 2014 in a bid to allow non-EU citizens to have children in this country via surrogacy.
For an intended mother to be admitted into the program, she should not be over 40 years of age and must have written medical evidence that shows she cannot have children naturally.
If surrogacy laws are broken, the parties liable could be subjected to a two-year jail term and a fine of up to $1,800.
