AUTHORIZATION TO REPATRIATE A CORPSE
In the event of the death of a Cameroonian in Germany, the persons responsible for the repatriation of the mortal remains are required to obtain a repatriation authorization issued by the Cameroonian Embassy in the Federal Republic of Germany. The documents to be provided are the following:
- Request addressed to the Ambassador
- Photocopy of the passport of the deceased
- Photocopy of the birth certificate of the deceased
- Photocopy of the death certificate
- Fees: Free of charge
The authorization to repatriate the corpse is usually issued immediately after receipt of the above-mentioned documents.
If the applicant is physically present at the embassy, he/she can receive the authorization the same day. If not, he/she should enclose a stamped envelope for registered mail with your address or give a signed and legalized proxy to a third party.
