3. Can I pay someone to be a surrogate mother?

The Human Reproductive Technology Ordinance prohibits surrogacy arrangements on a commercial basis.


Any person must not make or receive any payments for initiating or taking part in any negotiations with a view to the making of a surrogacy arrangement; offering or agreeing to negotiate the making of a surrogacy arrangement; or compiling any information with a view to its use in making, or negotiating the making of surrogacy arrangements, whether in Hong Kong or elsewhere.
