Repatriating a dead body from the USA to another country is a fairly complicated and expensive process with some requirements best handled by experts. For example, arrangements for dead body flights from the USA cannot be done on your own. You would need the services of a funeral director or a specialised transport company.
Process Of Repatriating A Body From The USA
1. Contact the nearest home country consulate and provide the deceased’s birth certificate. The consulate would need to know details of funeral homes in the United States and the receiving country.
2. Get death certificate and an embalming or cremation certificate from relevant authorities in the United States.
3. The USA health authorities would issue a transit permit for the body or ashes.
