Export of remains out of Hong Kong
If you wish to transport the deceased out of Hong Kong, you must apply for a “Permit for the Removal of a Dead Body from Hong Kong” at the Death Registry. This is free of charge.
You also need permission from the authorities in the place to which you are transporting the deceased. You can seek permission through the relevant embassy or consulate. You will need to make private arrangements for the transportation of the deceased out of Hong Kong.
If you wish to transport exhumed remains or cremated ashes out of Hong Kong, you must also make applications at the Cemeteries and Crematoria Office of the FEHD. Please click here to visit FEHD's website for more details.
