Traveling with Cremated Remains

Note: This information has been provided from CANA (Cremation Association of North America)


Use of the term CREMATED REMAINS here refers to both human and pet cremated remains. Considerations listed also apply to either the entire collected remains or smaller, divided portions thereof.

There are a number of issues involved in transporting cremated human remains that require advance planning and informed decisions. You may need a variety of documents (death certificate, certificate of cremation, various authorization forms, etc.) and the assistance of a licensed funeral director to send and/or receive the cremated remains.

The following is intended only as an overview of the process and not as a comprehensive documentation of all requirements.
