Top 5 destinations for IVF treatment in 2022

Fertility tourism is the idea of travelling to another country for fertility or IVF treatment. It falls under the umbrella of medical tourism. Although the United States does have high-quality healthcare and strict regulations, the cost of treatment and lack of success at their hometown clinics is causing couples to think outside of the box.

What to consider when searching for the best IVF treatment overseas

When looking for IVF treatment abroad, it’s important to consider at least six things:

  • Cost of treatment
  • Native language
  • Governing bodies
  • Flight, hotel and travel costs
  • Local fertility laws
  • Location of your frozen embryos and eggs

Let’s take a look at 5 countries for the best IVF abroad.

Top 5 destinations for IVF treatment in 2022

1. Grand Cayman Island

Grand Cayman, the largest of the Cayman Islands, hosts Cayman Fertility Centre. This state-of-the-art fertility clinic opened in January 2019 and is focused on providing IVF and donor egg services with some of the highest success rates in the world.

Most of their patients undergo pre-implantation genetic testing (PGT) with single embryo transfer and this clinic reports a greater than 84% pregnancy rate from elective single embryo transfers (eSET). This high pregnancy rate and use of advanced technology for an affordable price put Cayman Fertility Centre at the top of this list.

2. Barbados

Barbados Fertility Centre is the only clinic in Barbados, a small country of fewer than 300,000 people. This clinic is Joint Commission International (JCI) certified. It is the most well-regarded practice in the Caribbean, founded 19 years ago.

3. Czech Republic

The Czech Republic has approximately 30 clinics throughout the country and is well regulated by its governing body, the Czech Society for Assisted Reproduction. As Czech citizens, women under the age of 39 have 3 chances at IVF which is completely covered by the government. However, many travels to the Czech Republic for IVF treatments without being citizens.

4. Greece

Greece has just 60 clinics in its country but is a popular destination due to its beautiful scenery and low-cost IVF. The country also regulates IVF and related procedures and is a part of ESHRE. However, this varies by the clinic and is not mandated as in the U.S. Greek is the main language, and some clinics will have translators that can speak English, especially in clinics that cater to fertility tourism.

5. Spain

Spain is one of the most popular countries for IVF treatment abroad. Their national healthcare system is the Sistema Sanitario Publico. Spain is known to have clean and modern facilities with highly trained and specialized physicians. Many laws and regulations are in support of those going through IVF or using donors.
