Repatriation

Arranging a funeral can feel like a daunting task especially given the emotional stress many people are under when a loved one dies. We’re here to help you from the moment you need us through every step of the way.

Losing a loved one when not in their home country can be extremely unsettling, and the next steps can feel overwhelming to most.

Harmony International Repatriation services is a specialist team dedicated to the international transfer of someone who has passed away – be it back to the UK or transfer from the UK to another country.

Our expertise within the Asian and immigrant community means that we are highly experienced in the process of repatriation, and our multi-lingual team are well-placed to manage the entire process for you, ensuring that your loved one returns to the country he/she wishes to be laid to rest in.

Our repatriation services provide support to you and your family, whilst liaising with country’s embassy, airlines, insurance providers, and coroners on your behalf to ensure the safe transfer of your loved one across the world.

Death in the UK – sending body abroad

Contact Harmony International Repatriation Services informing us that you wish to send your loved one abroad, providing us with details of the deceased. We will then require the following documents:

  • Death Certificate
  • Passport of decease

We will then provide you with a quote and proceed in arranging the transfer.

Death Abroad – bringing body back to UK

Contact Harmony International Repatriation Services and we will discuss your particular case, as different countries will have different regulations and processes. As a general guide we recommend:

  • Informing travel insurance company of the death (if you have insurance)
  • Contacting the UK embassy within the country you’re loved one passed away in

When a loved one dies outside of their country of residence, it can be a confusing and complicated situation, however rest assured we will be by your side throughout and liaise with all relevant parties to gather all the relevant documentation required to arrange flights back to the UK.

Once back in the UK we will arrange the transfer of your loved one from the airport to our care, and from there we can begin making funeral arrangement plans.
