Repatriation and Embalming

Embalming is essential for dead body transportation from Nepal to India. The embalming service by a trusted funeral service, like the Last Journey, will be available on-site. Off-site embalming and preparation for international shipment may also be done. 

Following the decision to repatriate the body, the family must choose a funeral home in India as quickly as possible. The personnel of Last Journey will need to liaise with the Nepali mortuary service provider to confirm acceptance and transportation of the coffin from the relevant airline to the closest airport. Please keep in mind that choosing a single airline with as few connections as possible between Kathmandu and your final destination is usually the best option.
