While there are steps your firms should generally take when arranging transportation for a body (either embalmed or cremated) from the United States to a foreign country, requirements may vary by country. NFDA maintains the following list of country-specific requirements; this information will be updated when new information is made available to NFDA.
Questions regarding country-specific requirements are usually best answered by officials at the receiving country’s embassy. Contact information can be found on the Embassy.org website. You can also call NFDA at 800-228-6332 for assistance.
Some countries require documents accompanying human remains or cremated remains to be translated. If so, use NFDA’s endorsed document translation service.
