The federal government is granting travel exemptions for Australian women to travel overseas for IVF treatment or surrogacy arrangements not available under Australian law.

Growing Families, a charity that provides education and support on surrogacy and egg and sperm donation, claims to have helped dozens of women organise travel exemptions based on compassionate grounds.

Global director Sam Everingham said the charity had helped 100 women get travel exemptions to complete surrogacy arrangements and a further 23 for IVF treatment with donor eggs in Greece, Cyprus, the United States, South Africa and Russia.
