What happens if there are travel restrictions in place for the Intended Parents to come to the U.S.?
As of 9/15/2020 direct travel is no longer as limited as it was before. With the current new travel guidelines Intended Parents from all countries can enter the U.S. and apply for visas if necessary that will be granted on an “emergency basis”. With the birth of their baby, surrogacy is labelled an emergency which removes the travel ban that a lot of countries had previously.
If the Intended Parents are still unable to come to the United States a Newborn Care Nanny has legal guardianship through a power of attorney to care for the child until the Intended Parents can pick up their baby. Our Surrogates never have to care for the baby under any circumstances.
