When a friend died at the end of the year in Central America, I offered to repatriate his cremated remains when I go to the states at the end of this month. Airport security here has told me that I must pack the sealed container in my checked baggage. Here they do not allow them in a carry on bag. I think I should keep all original documents with me and put only a copy of the death certificate with the container. Or should I put the original death certificate with the container and hope that neither gets stolen? Since I have two more flights after clearing customs in the US, I plan to leave the container in my checked bags. sound okay?
