The procedures for burial differ depending on the religion of the deceased. For all burials, you will need proper documentation, including the original passport (cancelled from the embassy or consulate), proof that the residence visa has been cancelled from the DNRD, the death certificate, and an NOC from the sponsor stating that all financial obligations have been settled. Muslim burials must be performed quickly, so the formalities of getting a death certificate and registering the death can be done afterwards.
The Christian cemetery (04 337 0247) is located at Jebel Ali on land provided by the Dubai Government. To organise a Christian burial, you’ll first need to obtain an NOC from the Dubai Police Headquarters requesting that the Dubai Municipality clear the burial. Take that NOC, along with the required documents to the Municipality Cemetery Office to collect a clearance letter. You can contact the Christian cemetery caretaker to help with the rest of the process, including having a coffin and gravestone prepared and arranging the funeral. Burial fees for the Christian cemetery are Dhs.1,100 for adults and Dhs.350 for children.
