Requirements for transportation of a corpse or urn to Germany

Germany has very strict laws on how to handle human remains. As a general rule, all coffins and urns have to be buried in licensed graveyards. Private citizens are not allowed to have urns in their possession. Therefore, all transport in Germany has to be handled by licensed funeral homes.
