Timescale

We have great experience in expediting the repatriation process and can usually achieve a repatriation within a few days (paperwork depending)- please speak to our team about this. However, if speed isn’t of the essence, we can arrange a repatriation and then hold pending a flight date. Our fees include 90 days mortuary care, although if you speak to us regarding any longer-term requirements, we will be most accommodating.

Airport Transfers and Ferry Crossings to Greece

Global Funeral Repatriation offers a comprehensive international repatriation service to Greece. Our all-inclusive price is based on the paperwork, transportation of the coffin and a flight to Greece.

Paperwork

We have our own paperwork that is made available to you following a repatriation. We complete a ‘First Call & Quotation’ document, and a ‘Repatriation Report’ document.

First Call & Quotation

This document is used to outline all requirements that you have, it specifies all documents required of you, and us in order to repatriate; legally, effectively, and preparatory with a future funeral service in mind. This document also outlines the quotation as discussed with you, broken down for your advice.

Repatriation Report

This document specifies all of the details of the person who has passed away. It acts as a checklist for paperwork that we are required to collect on your behalf, logs and jewellery or property that we handle, and requires a signature from third parties to countersign the information on that document (e.g. a member of staff at a hospital where we collect someone who has passed away), justifying that the person has any jewellery or property at the time that we attended.

Then a third party at the location where we take the person who has passed away to, will sign to take custody of those items listed, out of our care).

Both documents are duplicated meaning that we can leave one copy with the person that we hand over to upon disembarkation. We can then email or post copies upon request.

We understand how distressing the passing of a loved one can be, especially if they have passed away in another city or a location that is not close to home. Our family strives to take out the stress of getting your loved one home.

If your loved one has passed away in the UK and you require advice on getting them back home to Portugal then contact us today on 0330 175 7517
