When someone dies abroad, their body has to be transported back to their home country. Repatriating someone who has died abroad requires experience and tact. Many factors need to be taken into consideration to ensure the smooth transportation of a coffin by air – such as applying for international death certificates, gaining the authority to move a corpse, numerous customs and legal formalities, and meeting the strict regulations regarding the transport of a coffin.
These arrangements are an additional burden for grieving relatives. Our transfer specialists take care of the entire repatriation process of the deceased in accordance with international customs requirements, local transport regulations and permits.
