The Ministry of Home and Cultural Affairs is pleased to inform that the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for dealing with Death of Foreign Nationals in Bhutan, 2016 has been endorsed by the 108th Lhengye Zhungtshog held on 12th July 2016. The Cabinet has directed this Ministry to issue the SOP for implementation.
In the absence of a SOP, there were issues of coordination amongst the agencies while dealing with death of foreign nationals in the country. Therefore, this SOP is being adopted as an administrative coordination mechanism to define functions of all relevant agencies so as to streamline the process for dealing with death of foreign nationals.
In view of the above, the MoHCA would like to request all the concerned agencies to kindly follow the SOP while dealing wit death of foreign nationals. In doing so, the concerned agencies are also requested to kindly sensitize relevant departments/branch offices/corporate/private sectors under your jurisdiction on the SOP. The SOP can be downloaded from the Ministry’s website at www.mohca.gov.bt.
