Burial Transit Permits


Disinterment permits issued by Vital Statistics serve as the authority to disinter, transport, and reinter a body within Texas.

If the body is to be removed from the state, transported by common carrier within the state, or cremated, a Burial-Transit Permit must also be obtained.

If you have questions or wish to apply for a disinterment permit, please contact a licensed funeral director.

For more information, please contact the Texas Department of State Health Services at 1-(888) 763-7111.
