International Shipping Information

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. 

Questions regarding country-specific requirements are usually best answered by officials at the receiving country’s embassy. Contact information can be found on the website. 

There are also several shipping companies that are ready and able to assist you. Download shipping and airline information to get started. 

Some countries require documents accompanying human remains or cremated remains to be translated. If so, use NFDA’s endorsed document translation service.
