For international patients

Due to exceptional care and a patient-friendly environment, we offer treatment to all international couples. Pretoria Fertility Centre is a SASREG-accredited clinic. SASREG is the Southern African Society of Reproductive Medicine and Gynecological Endoscopy who governs the fertility quality care in Reproductive Medicine.

Where to start?

The first step is establishing contact with one of the fertility coordinators at our clinic.

The registration form is to be completed and returned to the clinic with a copy of relevant medical records such as blood results and semen analysis.

Upon scheduling the first appointment a visa application letter must be requested. If you require a visa for traveling to South Africa a Medical Treatment Visa is recommended in lieu of a visitor’s visa that cannot be easily extended.

Your full names, passport numbers and passport expiry dates (for both husband and wife or partner/s) are required.
This letter will indicate the nature of the treatment as well as the date and time of the first appointment. It will also include the estimated costs of the treatment and the period of intended treatment.

Please refer to the following Department of Home Affairs website link that can provide you with additional information.
