What are the prime requirements of a legitimate airlifting of an Indian citizen from Sri Lanka?

It is mandatory to comply with the protocols and guidelines described by Sri Lankan authorities for safe, legal, and dignified transportation. The below-listed documents act as a clearance in the legal shipping of remains.

  • Death Certificate (medical clearance) from a certified hospital
  • No objection certificate (NOC) from the police authority of the deceased's residing area
  • Transit Permit from the Sri Lanka consulate
  • Certificate clearing the No no-infection state of the dead body
  • A consent letter signed by the head of the family
  • Embalming reports by the doctors
  • Coffin box certificate by the funeral home
  • Passport and Visa of the deceased for cancellation by Sri Lankan authority
  • Details of the booked tickets for air cargo services
  • Autopsy reports if the death was due to an unnatural cause

Different departments of Sri Lanka authority grant and submit all these above-listed documents. Last Journey is completely aware of the procedure for attaining these papers. Therefore you can rely on the team.


How to prepare the dead body for air shipping?

We as an experienced team understand that human remains are too vulnerable to survive in the normal state. With the help of local funeral direction entities, we arrange -

  • A well-equipped ambulance van for domestic transportation
  • A slot in the mortuary to prevent decomposition
  • Dead body freezer box for providing favorable temperature
  • A booking for embalming services by a certified team of doctors
  • A coffin box with the best sealing property and metal lining on the corners

Embalming is crucial for the dead bodies and it must be done before a few hours of final shipping. The team shifts the body to the center where doctors coat the skin with a chemical substance and replace the body fluid with a specific mixture. It improves the survival period of the dead body and prevents the skin from any damage & withering.

Arranging the tickets and end-to-end delivery of remains -:

After completing all the legal formalities on behalf of the family of the deceased and getting done with the medical procedure of the dead body, the team contacts the Sri Lanka airline where "two-way air cargo services" are available.

We book tickets and send the body at least 4 hours before the scheduled shipping time. In the case of unaccompanied transportation, team members will travel with it and deliver the cargo to the doorstep of the receiver in India.
