Clearance from the hospital authority

Usually, the clearance right after the death is acquired by the hospitals where the person was admitted. But if the person has died due to sudden causes like an attack or organ failure then a certified private or government hospital gives clearance in the form of a death certificate. The main points one must keep in mind while getting the death certificate.

  1. The language of the death certificate must be in both the languages of the concerned countries, India and Kuwait.
  2. One must check the information regarding the deceased person like age, name, gender, time and reason twice because a slight mistake can delay the entire process.
  3. If the person dies under some skeptical circumstances then the death certificate must be attached with a postmortem report.
  4. The death certificate is an important and first document that helps in proceeding it further.

Clearance from the local police station and legal authority

The local police station intervenes in this process. They ask some questions related to the death cause and timing of the unfortunate incident. Then they issue a NOC ( no objection certificate) document. It makes the further proceeding less complex. For this document, the close family member needs to visit the police station that comes in that jurisdiction of the respective area.

Embalming process and Embalming certificate

The human remains can not survive the normal temperature and the other things also affect the body. They make it easily deplorable. Hence the embalming process is very necessary for the security of the remains. This process replaces the body fluids with some chemical substance and a coating of the human body with chemical material also takes place in it. This is suggested that the people should choose a government or a certified private center for the embalming services. One does not forget to take the embalming certificate from the same center. This certifies that the body can be shipped and it will reach the destined location without any decay.

Arrangement of Coffin and Coffin certificate

After the embalming process, the embalmed body should be placed safely inside a coffin. Usually, it is provided by the embalming centers. But if one is unable to get it from there then he or she must look for a professional funeral undertaker for coffin services. This coffin must be certified through a certificate. It is written on that document that the coffin can be shipped through a cargo shipping service. The family member must check it before buying. It should not be cracked from anywhere and it should be new.

List of important documents before leaving for an air service organization
