Transportation of deceased to another country

If you choose to transport the deceased back to his or her own country, you will need to make arrangements through both DNATA and whichever airline you choose to transport the body. DNATA will handle the body at Cargo Village as well as process the required documentation, but reserving cargo space on an airline is the responsibility of the person making the arrangements. When preparing the required documentation, remember that DNATA will require seven photocopies of each document and translation.

 
Along with the original police NOC, you will need to obtain an NOC from the Cargo Village police station. If you haven’t already done so, get an NOC from the embassy to allow the deceased to leave the country. Submit these documents and all previously obtained documents to the DNATA export office in Cargo Village.
 
Before the body can leave the country, it must be embalmed at Al Maktoum Hospital Mortuary. You will need a police NOC to have this performed. The process takes around three hours and the body must be identified both before and after the embalming. The hospital will then arrange transportation to Cargo Village, where the body will be weighed and the paperwork will be processed. Be sure to confirm the required documents needed by DNATA. If nobody is accompanying the deceased, someone must confirm by fax with DNATA that they will receive the body from the airport.
