Useful information on repatriation
If a family member or a relative of yours, Romanian citizen, died in another country, you should know the following:
• Death must be registered with the local authorities in the country concerned;
• Death can be registered at the Romanian embassy or consulate of the country concerned (not required);
• If the Embassy or Consulate of Romania is notified about the death by local authorities, they would be responsible for informing the death of Romanian citizens to the Ministry of Interior of Romania, which would inform the family concerned afterwards;
• Registering the death to the Romanian embassy or consulate allows the release of the Romanian death certificate required for international funeral transport;
• Note: The Romanian certificate of death can only be issued based on the death certificate issued by the local authorities originally from that country and other documents provided by the Romanian legislation;
• If death registration was not done at the embassy or consulate, the Romanian death certificate will be issued in Romania, by the Romanian authorities, based on the foreign death certificate and other documents provided by the Romanian legislation;
• If the death was caused by a violent action, you can then request the intervention of local police authorities to investigate the case. Conducting investigations may delay the international transfer procedure of the deceased to Romania;
