Some Information About Funeral Shipping


 
Advice,Government,Import - Export
When a loved one passes on, it is always difficult to arrange a funeral. Beyond the fact that there are many details and options going into the planning of funerals, there is also all of the grief and stress that comes along with mourning. Things become extra difficult when someone passes far from their place of birth. Since many people travel these days, interstate funeral shipping is pretty common. However, when someone needs to be shipped internationally, there is a lot more red tape involved.

More documents are needed to ship internationally than shipping for domestic funerals. The necessary documents vary from country to country, but the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) recommends that these documents be present:

Death certificate

Burial and transit

Permit letter of non-contagious disease

Embalmers affidavit Passport of deceased (if obtainable) Letter stating that only human remains are inside the casket, the flight itinerary consignee's name, address and phone number

After 9-11, many flight regulations were applied in order to prevent acts of terrorism. As this made things difficult for funeral homes to ship internationally and domestic funeral shipping, the TSA created the known shipper program. This provided a way for funeral homes that were “known shippers” to ship bodies without any time consuming screening processes.

A funeral home must register as a known shipper for each airline that they use. This can be difficult and expensive for the funeral homes, but the TSA states that it is a necessary procedure to minimize security risks. Different airlines may have different rules dealing with international funeral shipping. As caskets are very heavy, shipping weight may be a concern. Check with the funeral director to ensure that everything can be shipped. It may be necessary to ship the body without the casket.

Things work slightly differently when a body is cremated. There are different laws and regulations when shipping cremated remains. Cremated remains may be mailed but only through United States Postal Service. UPS, FedEX and DHL will not accept them. If you are shipping internationally and are not fluent in the language of your loved one’s destination, you must get a translator through Certified Languages International (CLI) to translate any accompanying documents. Members of the NFDA get a 15 percent discount on all of these interpretation services. The CLI’s services are available around the clock, 365 days a year. It may be necessary to consult a consulate or embassy. ">When a loved one passes on, it is always difficult to arrange a funeral.
