Fertility Clinics in Ireland
Background Ireland remains one of the world’s most popular travel destinations. It has world class fertility clinics offering all types of treatments. The cost of fertility treatments is on a par with the UK. Dublin is a lively city and easy to reach from all over the world. There is no state funding for IVF treatment in Ireland so all cases are privately funded.

Health & Safety You should get a free European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) before leaving the UK. After 31 December 2020, your UK-issued EHIC might not be valid. The EHIC entitles you to state provided medical treatment that may become necessary during your trip. Any treatment provided is on the same terms as Irish nationals. It is important to take out comprehensive travel insurance that includes cover for emergency medical treatment and associated costs. The existing EHIC arrangements are not an alternative to travel insurance, as some health-related costs, including for medical repatriation, ongoing medical treatment and non-urgent treatment, are not covered.

Prior to this it required a separate ‘Declaration of Parentage’, which is no longer required.
