Funeral FAQ: Repatriation

With an ageing population, cheap airfares and an explosion in the homestay sector, it’s not surprising that more deaths are occurring interstate and overseas. If the deceased person wishes to be laid to rest in their home state or country, repatriation services from an experienced funeral director will be needed.

Arranging Repatriation

Repatriation is when a person dies away from home and their body needs to be moved from one state to another, or from one country to another. When this happens, many people feel at a loss. This first step is to call a local funeral director who is experienced in arranging repatriations. They will be able to handle all the paperwork and logistics that come with arranging for a deceased person to be repatriated. The funeral director will also liaise with the family and make appropriate funeral arrangements in the home location.
