International or National Repatriation

Repatriation is taking home the body or the remains of someone who has died in a foreign land, a land that is not of their birth or that of their ancestors. There may be a personal desire to be buried in one’s native country or the need to bring the deceased back to New Zealand.

Fountains Funerals & Monuments are able to offer an expert worldwide repatriation service. In conjunction with this we also provide a service to all the main centres around New Zealand where there is a registered funeral firm.


  • The transfer of the deceased.
  • The embalming of the deceased and the provision of a suitable casket for air transport.
  • The legal documentation for foreign shipment and the documents to the Consulate’s Office.
  • The air transportation to the deceased’s country of origin.

You should contact us as soon as possible to help with repatriation of the deceased.
