You must know that the repatriation of the ashes is less expensive and that it requires less legal formalities. In the one case as in the other, we are here to accompany you thru all the steps.
When the death occurs, the body must be cared for by a local funeral home. If you have a life insurance, make sure you contact them in the shortest possible time in order to know the procedure to follow and whether they have an agreement with a local home. During a repatriation of ashes, the funeral home will have to proceed to the cremation, declare the death according to their laws and regulations, and provide proof of official death and of cremation. During a repatriation of body, the difference is that the funeral home must proceed with the embalming according to international standards and provide a certificate of embalming.
