Rahayu Mahzam on importing pre-implantation genetically screened embryos stored overseas amid travel curbs

(Updated: )

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ministry of Health (MOH) received appeals from some couples to import their pre-implantation genetically screened embryos stored overseas. MOH may allow this if conditions are met. These include ensuring that the processes and standards of the overseas assisted reproduction centres are aligned to Singapore's regulatory requirements. Standards and rules in the handling, processing and storage of the embryos must be adhered to. Parliamentary Secretary for Health Rahayu Mahzam said this in Parliament on Monday (Mar 8), in reply to an MP's question.
