Repatriation

What is Repatriation

Repatriation is the process of returning a person’s remains to their home country. This can be necessary for a number of reasons, including burial or funeral requirements and the desire to have a funeral with the relatives of a deceased person. 

Repatriation is typically handled by the deceased person’s family or friends, but it can also be arranged through a professional service — like Advance Planning Specialists. Regardless of who handles it, repatriation can be a complex and expensive process. It is often necessary to obtain special permits and travel documents and arrange for the body’s transportation. In some cases, it may also be necessary to make arrangements for a local funeral or cremation in the destination country. For all these reasons, repatriation can be a difficult and emotionally charged experience. However, it is often an essential step in honoring the life of a loved one.
