Repatriation means returning the deceased to their home country. You can choose to have the deceased cremated and then repatriate the ashes, or have their body repatriated for burial or cremation back home.

Depending on the country, the repatriation flight is normally 7 to 10 days after you’ve signed our authorisation form and we’ve taken the body of the deceased into our care. If a post mortem is necessary, it may take longer.

We get the death certificates for you: the local one, all in Spanish, and the international one, in multiple languages, for use back home. You don’t need to have the international death certificate translated.

Some people request this, but it’s not usually possible. We receive the flight details with very little notice, and they sometimes include stopovers. When we let you know the flight details, it’s up to you to make the arrangements.

Yes. We respect all faiths and beliefs. We can arrange a visit by an imam for preparation of the body. If you want a local minister who speaks your language to attend a burial or cremation, we can help you find someone. In both cases, a fee or donation may be required.
