Cremated remains (human ashes) are permitted to be mailed internationally under the following conditions:
The mailer must package cremated remains (human ashes) in a strong and durable container. If powders could escape from their containers and thereby cause damage, discomfort, destruction, or soiling, the mailer must pack the powders either in a sift-proof container or in other containers sealed in durable, sift-proof outer containers.
The mailer must indicate the identity of the contents on the required applicable customs declaration form (see 123.61).
