Transportation of the Deceased Apostille

Bringing a loved one home from a distant country or transporting a family member to a last resting place overseas is always a hardship when it comes to transportation of the deceased across international boundaries. The procedure is complicated by a number of things.

Foreign officials, customs authorities, and transportation businesses are all on high alert when it comes to the items being transferred over international borders.

Those customs officials, as well as other authorities both inside and outside the United States, must ensure that the contents of the urn or coffin comply with all applicable national and international norms and laws. Furthermore, the kind of papers that must be submitted, as well as the legalization procedure and translation requirements, may differ drastically from one nation to the next.
