German citizen Jan Balaz and his wife faced a tricky situation after their country refused entry to their twins born to a surrogate mother in Gujarat.
Surrogacy is not recognised in Germany. After two years of legal wrangling, Germany granted visa to the twins in May this year.
Dan Goldberg, an Israeli gay, remained stranded in Mumbai as the Israeli government took three months to issue passports to his twins born to a surrogate Indian mother.
The twin boys – Itai and Liron – were issued Israeli passports after the DNA paternity established last month that Goldberg was their biological father.
