The Passenger must submit the following at check-in and at the inspection filters (these being "X" Rays and in some cases with explosives detection equipment):

  • Death Certificate in original or copy
  • Cremation Document in original or copy
  • The ashes container shall be of metal or resistant material and hermetically sealed (usually the one provided by the funeral home) to prevent any leakage or any type of contamination. It will not be necessary to open the urn at the security control.
  • NO health seal required.
