Shipping frozen embryos to Mexico – Permit required
November 20, 2016 / John
We regularly ship frozen embryos, sperm and eggs to and from Mexico. In order to accept or release frozen IVF bio-materials, the Mexican clinic needs to apply for an import/export permit from the Mexican health authorities. This process can take anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks and may cost upwards of $300 USD – depending on the clinic and arrangements you have with them. It is always a good idea to give the Mexican clinic ample time before you plan to move your frozen embryos, frozen sperm or frozen eggs. Once the permit has been received, we are able to smoothly import/export IVF samples.
