When a funeral home is going to ship a body from the U.S. to another country, the family of the deceased must provide the name of the funeral home that is located in the country the body is being shipped to, as well as communicate with the funeral home to make sure the funeral home is prepared to receive the body. The funeral directors must embalm the body in compliance with U.S. standards. The following should be included with the body being shipped: communicable disease affidavit, embalmers affidavit, two copies of the death certificate, the burial/transfer permit and authorization forms.
