Inbound & Outbound Repatriation

One of the most difficult situations any bereaved family can face is when a loved one passes away overseas and needs to be repatriated for cremation or interment. The legal processes and paperwork involved in transporting human remains between countries can seem daunting and are a difficult thing to handle when you are coping with grief.
