International Transport/ Contagious Disease Letter

If a body is to be transported out of the country, you will be asked to provide a letter that the body is free of contagion and can be transported across borders.  If you need this letter, notify us as soon as possible so that we can generate this letter before the body is released from this office.  If there are any additional stipulations that need to be included in the letter please notify us.

The letters will simply state we examined the body of (name) on (date) at the Office of the Medical Examiner in Salt Lake City and we found no evidence of a contagious process that would prevent travel across international borders.
