Next, complete the Maricopa County Out of State Disposition Transit Permit. This may be found by following the link, logging in to VSIMS, and locating the form under the ‘funeral home resources’ link. The form is titled Disposition-Transit Permit and located about half way down the page. Make sure that all of the required fields are answered.
Some of the most forgotten fields are the licensed funeral director’s signature and the date of disposition and a reliable return fax and phone number to reach your office if the Maricopa Office of Vital Records needs to review information.
Once the Maricopa County Out of State Disposition Transit Permit request is completed and you have obtained the supporting documentation from the out of state funeral home as described above, please fax these documents to 602-506-6878. Our office will then review and process the permit request if all information has been provided.
Note: Cremation disposition requests must be authorized by the Office of the Medical Examiner and this may take some extra time. Once the permit number has been issued, we will fax the permit back to you.
