Reproductive, fertility or infertility tourism is the practice of traveling to other countries for fertility treatments.
These are the main destinations for low cost IVF and other cheap or affordable fertility treatments
Israel: Israel is the world capital of IVF and is one of the busiest fertilization clinics in the world. Unlike countries where couples can go broke trying to conceive with the assistance of costly medical technology, Israel provides free, unlimited IVF procedures for up to two “take-home babies” until a woman is 45. More than a million tourists traveled to Israel in 2012 for medical treatment.
Spain: Despite its reputation as a predominantly Catholic country, Spain is a popular destination for fertility tourism, thanks to the open minded attitude that is enshrined in law, allowing anyone access to fertility treatment. Spain has over 200 fertility clinics offering a wide range of fertility treatments.
India: Clinics throughout India are well established and have high standards; relaxed regulations allow treatments for women up to 55 and also for single people. The low cost of these procedures is another aspect which attracts medical tourists to this country. In India low cost IVF fertility treatments are available from as little as $690.
Malaysia: Malaysia is becoming an increasingly popular destination for low cost IVF fertility tourism as a result of a government initiative to promote and regulate health-care for overseas patients through the Malaysia Healthcare Travel Council. The MHTC works in close collaboration with the Association of Private Hospitals of Malaysia to offer high quality fertility treatment at competitive and affordable prices.
Bulgaria: IVF fertility treatment in Bulgaria is attractive to foreign patients due to its competitive prices, non-existent waiting lists, good international flight connections and foreign-language speaking doctors and nurses.
