Local procedures for transportation of mortal remains of foreign nationals vary from country to country. In Gulf countries,the normal time line ranges from 2 to 4 weeks due to local procedures as indicated above.If the death was due to unnatural causes and investigations are ongoing to ascertain the cause of death, it may take significantly longer, depending upon progress in the investigations. The Indian Embassy/Consulate stays in touch with the concerned local authorities to expedite the process.
