Repatriation (moving the deceased person to India)



Repatriation Services Sydney

Repatriation is the process of moving the deceased person’s body interstate or overseas (e.g. India) to be laid to rest in their Place of Birth or Their Home Country.

Why choose to repatriate?

Many people choose to repatriate for variety of reasons such as:

  • It is deceased persons wish to be buried or cremated in their homeland or home town or in the country of their birth.
  • The family members may believe that the deceased person’s soul may not be at peace unless he or she is returned to their homeland for funeral.
  • If most of the deceased person’s family is overseas, it gives them comfort that their loved one is buried/cremated in the country of their origin whether it’s India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh or any other country. For example a deceased person may be an International student from India and his/her parents want the funeral service to be done in India.
  • Some families (Indian, Sri Lankan, Christian, Nepalese, Bangladeshi or Buddhist) may choose to repatriate their deceased loved ones as it is a spiritual journey for them and it helps them move on with their life.
