Jamaica committed to repatriating human remains

| May 13, 2020

Dear Fellow Jamaicans and Friends of Jamaica,

The Jamaican High Commission has been receiving enquiries regarding the regulations governing the shipment of human remains to Jamaica, particularly in relation to persons who have died from the deadly coronavirus.

In this regard, please be advised that the Government of Jamaica offers no objection to the shipment of the bodies of loved ones who have died due to the coronavirus, provided that certain guidelines are observed, including ensuring that the body is shipped in a lead lined coffin.  Please visit this link for more information

Please note that cargo flights are still in operation to Jamaica and subject to space availability, nationals may be able to fulfil their deceased’s life long desire to be laid to rest in Jamaica.  In this regard, you are advised to engage the services of a suitable funeral home in Jamaica to make the necessary arrangements.

To affected family members, please accept our sincere condolences and best wishes.  Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families during this difficult time.

Kind Regards

Seth George Ramocan CD

High Commissioner
