What documents are required for the repatriation of a deceased or ashes to the United States?


The following documents are required for the transfer of corpses or urns to the USA.

Copy of the deceased's ID or passport

Data (name and telephone number) of the recipient (possibly undertaker in the USA) or the data of the accompanying person.

All other documents such as Birth certificate for single, marriage certificate for married, death certificate of spouse for widowed etc. are only required for the final death certificate, but can easily be submitted to the responsible registry office after the transfer of the dead person.

If documents are missing, a provisional death certificate will be issued by the registry office, with which the body or urn can be transported to the USA without any problems.

The total cost of moving a body to the United States varies greatly and depends on the following factors.

Which airports do we transfer the deceased to in the USA?

Every international airport is able to accept corpses and is therefore approachable.

In the USA there are the following airports e.g.

New York, all airports (EWR, JFK, LGA) (NYC, USA) ...

Miami International Airport, FL (MIA, USA) ...

How long does it take for the deceased to arrive in the US?
As a rule, a smooth transfer of a body to the USA takes between 5-12 working days.


What are the costs for repatriation from the USA to Germany?

If a death occurs in the USA, it is possible for us to cooperate with our local partners in order to transport the deceased back to Germany. This is often associated with very high costs, so it always makes sense to take out travel health insurance.

The total costs are made up of the costs of the undertaker in the United States of America, any open treatment costs from a clinic in the USA, and our services to the desired airport or cemetery.


Will I always be kept up to date with the processing?

Yes, we always conduct the transfer of the deceased to the USA in close consultation with you, so that you are always up to date. If you do not want this, please let us know in good time.


We are at your disposal at any time and stand by your side as an experienced, reliable and competent partner in the event of a body being transferred to the USA.
