Report of Death

When a Filipino citizen dies abroad, the fact of the death should be promptly reported to the Consular Section so that the heirs in the Philippines would have an official record of the passing for purposes of inheritance and related matters.

 

The local report of death and certificate of death issued by the Civil Status and Passports Department of Jordan (or its equivalent under the Palestinian National Authority) should be presented to the Consular Section as soon as available so that the Foreign Service Report of Death and other documents of the deceased can be readied for the repatriation of the human remains.

  • JOD 18.750 (USD 25.00) for the Consular Mortuary Certificate
