Morgue services and Covid-19 cremation in UAE start at AED4,800 or P65,000

-

Pursuant to UAE’s rules and regulations, all the remains of patients who have succumbed to Covid-19 are mandated to be cremated within 48 hours. 

Cremation can be conducted in the New Sonapur Hindu Cremation Ground in Jebel Ali, and Al Foah Crematorium and Burial Facility in Al Ain. 

According to The Filipino Times’ sources, morgue services and cremation start at AED4,800 or approximately Php65,000. 

Cremation can only be conducted once all requirements such as death certificate, police permits, a letter from the embassy, and payments, have been processed. 

“The Embassy has been advised that per UAE regulations, the remains of a foreign national who dies from Covid-19-related cases should either be cremated or buried within 48 hours. This should be arranged by the employer or company of the foreign national,”  the statement from the Philippine Embassy in UAE noted. 

After the remains are cremated, the ashes of the deceased will be returned over to a family member who lives in UAE, however, if the deceased didn’t have any family members, the employer is required to get in touch with the family of the deceased in the Philippines to facilitate sending the ashes back home.
