Hi Renu,

Here are two links that could be useful.

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-01-15/i ... ts/4465198

I dont think the law distinguishes between foreign couples and Indian couples as far as the Marriage requirements are concerned.

I dont think there is a way to overcome the 2 year condition. But, as far as the visa is concerned, the baby would get Indian Citizenship by Birth, by the virtue of your husband being an Indian Citizen and you are not an illegal immigrant as you hold an OCI card, which is a valid Immigration Document. Moreover, with an OCI card, you are treated on par with an Indian Citizen except that you cannot work in Government.

Any person born in India, on or after 26 January 1950 but prior to the commencement of the 1986 Act on 1 July 1987, is a citizen of India by birth. A person born in India on or after 1 July 1987 is a citizen of India if either parent was a citizen of India at the time of the birth. Those born in India on or after 3 December 2004 are considered citizens of India only if both of their parents are citizens of India or if one parent is a citizen of India and the other is not an illegal migrant at the time of their birth.


You should be able to get an Indian Passport and an American Visa based on your Husband's Immigration status.

The other site also provides sufficient information on the legal aspects of the Indian Surrogacy Law.

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to introduce myself to the forum and wanted to say that I have found all of the info in this forum very helpful. My husband and I are going to be in Anand May 13 to May 30, 2013 in hopes of successful IVF & surrogacy. Is anyone else going to be in Anand around the same time? It would be nice to meet others who are going through the same process... I am a bit nervous. We will be staying at the Madhubhan Resort & Spa.

Hello
We are a little confused about the timing of when to start taking BC pills, when to get the ultrasound/labs, when we leave for Anand and arrival. Our understanding is finish the pills, next day ultraound and labs, then the next day fly to Anand. Is this correct? As Dr Patel's email says she will call us on day 4 of stopping the pills. Should we already be in Anand at this time? Help!! We are planning a September trip but planning flights, hotel within the next couple weeks

Hi bmkoss,

We are going to Anand from July 27th through August 17th. Unfortunately the communication style between Dr. Patel's office and ours is very different - can't blame her - she's super busy and there's a definite cultural difference. My husband and I are also planning IVF/Surrogacy in India. She wants to know our estimated cycle start dates for the next 4 months, but unfortunately I cant' do that since I just had a miscarriage in January and my cycles are all off. Anyway, what I have been doing is e-mailing her monthly with my cycle updates. From the research that I've done, she does IVF/Surrogacy twice a month 1-15, and 16-30/31. Also, there's a definite need for your wife to be there for at least 3 weeks. So plan for that. Dr. Patel can work around your schedule and your cycle. The timing can be tweaked very easily with a few extra days of birthcontrol pills. So what you should do is pick the dates, and ask her if that works for her. That's what we did. We have our hotel and flights booked. In May, June, and July, we will e-mail her agian to ask her what she needs from us. September is unfortunately far away, and she's dealing with patients who are coming in the next few months. I went through exactly what you went through last month - so many questions, so many unknowns. And it seems like you're a planner like me. I would just pick the dates, e-mail her if those dates work, and start planning :-).

Hi all

Congratulations to all who have had successes and good luck to those trying.

We are expecting twins EDD is 7th Apr 14, so as I understand it, they will be delivered early. We are planning to fly over to India 1st Mar 14.

We have yet to sort out hotel accommodation, but hoping to stay at Rama.

We would love to hear from other couples who will be out there at the same time to share experiences and tips. We are from the UK, so we will have an extensive stay out in India.

Thanks
slinky

Hi Slinky,
Our twins EDD is 15 April 2014. Yes, I expect delivery sooner maybe at 32-34 weeks. We received a 24week report and they were normal but a little small for gestational age so we are hoping they will gain some weight. I was also planning on being in Anand at Rama Residency in the beginning of March with my sister. We should probably see you there. It may be busy at Rama since I know a few expecting IPs in April. We are planning to fly Emirates from JFK New York to AMD.

Hi Slinky,

We also plan on flying out around the beginning of March. We hope the next scan we get will give us a better idea about when we need to arrive. I think we may get a new scan around 30 or 32 weeks. It is very exciting to begin planning our trip.

Congrats on your twins! See you in Anand soon.
