Do the deceased buried in private cemeteries have to be buried for 7 years before exhumation?按此打開

Yes. It is because Administrative Regulation no. 37/2003 amended by Administrative Regulation no. 22/2019 is also applicable to private cemeteries. In accordance with the stipulation of Article 11 of the relevant regulation, exhumation of the deceased can only be carried out after 7 years of burial in tomb. If it is found that the remains are not completely decomposed at the time of exhumation, the remains should be buried again for at least one year.
