Shipping of Cryofrozen Embryos and Sperms


At Our Centre, we offer the facility of shipping your frozen embryos as well as semen samples from an IVF Clinic in your country to our clinic in Mumbai.

Our worldwide courier services can co-ordinate the safe transport of your frozen semen samples or embryos across countries so that you need not travel & save valuable time and money. This is useful for patients who wish to avail of our surrogacy program without having to go under a painful IVF cycle again.

As soon as the samples are received at Our Centre, they are immediately transferred to our Liquid nitrogen Storage tanks to ensure safe storage. You will receive an e-mail once safe transport of your samples is completed.

The embryo import protocol is as follows:

The patient/couple will first have to contact a courier company that has cryoshippers, and is willing to transport the embryos to India.

The patient and her husband are then required to fill in the declarations specified by the ICMR. (attached below). They are to mail the soft copies as well as hard copies to us (the IVF center), along with the other documents required. (attached below).

We will then send these declarations and documents to the ICMR for approval. They will grant an NOC after they review each case on an individual basis. This can take upto 6-8 weeks. They will then mail the hard copy of the NOC to the IVF center. This is typically valid for a period of 3 months, within which the couple will be given customs clearance and permission to ship the embryos into country.

Although the procedure for semen import is the same, the declarations required are a little different (attached below). In this case, the ICMR also requires a certificate stating the reason why the husband/male partner cannot travel to India.
