How fast does a repatriation take place from or to France?
The answer to this question is, as often in unpredictable situations: it depends. The way of death plays a role, but also, for example, how the cooperation with the French authorities works. As you understand, a police investigation takes longer for the deceased to be released for transport than for a natural death. On average you can count on five working days. Of course we do our utmost to repatriate the deceased as quickly as possible.
This is how repatriation from and to France works:
- We take care of all the formalities associated with a repatriation from or to France. For example, we relieve you in the following areas: contact with the embassy, a laissez-passer, an extract from the death register, a medical statement and if needed a release for transport.
- In most cases, the body is embalmed for transportation. Read more about embalming.
- We take care of the funeral transport for repatriation from or to France by car. Of course we arrange all customs formalities for you.
- Upon arrival in the Netherlands or France we transfer your deceased loved one to the funeral director that you have chosen yourself.
