I was going to the UK but the airline just checked it and gave it back.
Screamer, is the test at the Ram an RT_PCR test? Thanks

Please ask what assistance they offer the spouse of a US citizen when the citizen dies.
Thanks, Terry
Terry: I received the following information from the U.S. Embassy:

When a U.S. citizen dies overseas, we first seek to make contact with the next-of-kin and the executor of the will to offer condolences and support from the embassy. There are several key ways the embassy supports families of U.S. citizens who die overseas.
• We provide a list of funeral homes that have experience working with foreigners.
• We issue a letter of instruction to whomever the family designates to take next steps for the funeral. This letter authorizes the designated party to take possession of the remains.
• The embassy will issue a Consular Report of Death Abroad (CRODA), an official U.S. government document that can be used in place of a death certificate to settle affairs in the United States. We will mail a total of 20 original copies of the CRODA.
• We also notify the Social Security Administration, the decedent’s state of birth, and, where applicable, the Department of Veterans Affairs.
• If the decedent was a veteran, we can assist the family’s application for a burial flag.
We encourage U.S. citizens to do end-of-life planning while they are still healthy. This could include finalizing their will, issuing a power of attorney, or issuing an advance directive. The embassy can assist by notarizing documents for a fee. In times of crisis, having clarity on who you authorize to make decisions on your behalf makes a big difference.

Terry, hope this helps.  Cheers, Nigel
