Body Repatriation Services to South Africa

We can organise to have your loved ones transported to and from South Africa.

The Republic of South Africa may be many hours’ flight away from the UK but the historical bonds between the two countries are strong. As such, there are many South African nationals in the UK for work, for business or for pleasure at any one time. Inevitably, sometimes deaths will occur meaning that the friends and the family of the deceased would like the body to be repatriated to South Africa. If so, Newrest Funerals is on hand to make all of the necessary arrangements. Importantly, you can contact us to begin making the repatriation plan on your behalf whether you are currently in the UK yourself, in South Africa or calling us from another part of the world.

At Newrest Funerals, we deal with body repatriations to destinations all over southern Africa frequently, including South Africa. This means that you can turn to us with confidence. We know what we are doing with obtaining the necessary documentation that will allow the body to pass over the international border without officials causing delays. Please bear in mind that you cannot simply take a body out of the country by sea or air without the right paperwork in place. Allow us to take care of these technical issues for you at what is likely to be a time of great sadness. We can help you whether the body of the deceased is in England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland and handle the minor rule differences that apply in different locations.
