Controls on Freezing and Transporting Samples in Artificial Insemination Methods

I live in Jordan but my husband is living in Australia. I need to undergo vitro fertilization because I can`t give birth naturally. After taking the sperms from my husband, they are frozen, placed in a special medical container, and transported to Jordan where the insemination will take place. What is the ruling of Sharia on transporting these sperms? This is knowing that I`m currently taking medications and injections for ovulation induction and they are very costly and should be taken at a specific time. In addition, freezing sperms and moving them cost around ten thousand JDs.

A husband and wife fertilized an egg and agreed on planting it in the wife`s womb, but couldn`t do so due to the spread of corona virus pandemic, so the fertilized egg remained stored in fertility clinic at the hospital. Now, the husband has passed away and the wife would like to have the fertilized egg planted in her womb. Is it permissible for her to do so since families of both spouses were aware of that and it was documented by the fertility clinic staff of that hospital?
