What does repatriation mean?
Repatriation is the process of relocating a deceased individual to another country when a death happens outside of the country. Some Indian nationals who die abroad express a desire to be buried or cremated in India, or vice versa. All these services are provided by the Last Journey.
How does repatriation from any country work?
We can assist you in arranging for your loved one to be buried or cremated in a foreign country. Once we are provided with the copy of the death certificate, we manage the creation of all necessary papers required to repatriate the deceased by air transport.
What documents are needed for repatriation to India?
If you are returning a loved one’s body to India, you will need the following documentation:
- Death Registration Form (for Indian nationals only).
- Local authorities issued original death certificate as well as a copy.
- Permit for Burial or Cremation.
- “Non Communicable Disease,” letter from the Public Health Office.
- Embalming certificate, out-of-province coroner’s certificate, consignee’s name, address, phone number, etc.
- Flight Information
How long does it take to repatriate a body?
The time it takes to repatriate the body varies based on where the individual died, but it normally takes between five and seven days if the deceased died of natural causes.
A post-mortem may delay repatriation by up to three months if there were questionable circumstances surrounding the death; but, on average, transporting a loved one to your chosen country takes ten to fifteen days.
What is an undertaker?
A funeral director, often known as an undertaker in the United Kingdom or a mortician in the United States, is the person or people in charge of making funeral arrangements for a bereaved family.
Does an undertaker arrange everything at a funeral?
Undertakers work closely with family and friends to ensure that their expectations are met and that any special requests for the service are met.
Do undertakers only do cremation?
No, undertakers plan all types of funerals, including religious and non-religious services, burials, and cremations.
