How do I transfer ashes or human remains to Mexico?
When a Mexican citizen dies outside the country, the Mexican consulate can help with the necessary paperwork to return their body to Mexico.
If a Mexican resident living in the United States dies and his or her relatives want to return his or her remains or ashes to Mexico, consular offices can assist them as long as they follow certain requirements.
The many procedures that can be carried out are part of the Mexican government's official programs to connect citizens with their homeland. This is the case with the Soy Mexico campaign, which allows children born in the United States to get dual nationality for free.
