If dealing with a death of a U.S. Citizen in a foreign country, contact the Bureau of Consular Affairs (U.S. Dept. of State):

  • Death Overseas  "The Bureau of Consular Affairs provides information on how to make arrangements for local burial or return of the remains to the United States. The disposition of remains is subject to U.S. and local (foreign) law, U.S. and foreign customs requirements, and the foreign country facilities, which are often vastly different from those in the United States."
