Repatriation of bodies to other countries
Some countries require a Cadaver Certificate before they will allow a body into the country for burial.
The certificate, if issued, confirms that no epidemic of infectious disease occurred in the borough for some three months preceding the death.
The certificate is issued by the Environmental Health Officer for the Council in whose area the person died, or is to be exhumed from before reburial elsewhere.
Every country has its own regulations and it is always worth checking with the Embassy or Consulate first.
