Repatriation of Remains from Barbados to the UK

Homeland International have supported with the repatriation of remains from Barbados for many years, including many cases back to the UK. Our 24/7 team are well experienced in repatriation from Barbados and understands the processes and requirements to complete repatriation back to the UK.

We have built excellent relationships with suppliers and airlines across the Caribbean and in particular within Barbados. 

How Repatriation from Barbados works

Repatriation of remains from Barbados usually takes about 7 to 10 days to complete. Homeland International works with a vetted local provider, who provide us with the logistical support on the ground, such as collecting paperwork. We have worked with this provider for many years and have an excellent working relationship. 

We collate the required paperwork from the various parties in Barbados and organise an embalming and a repatriation coffin. These are required for repatriation from Barbados to anywhere in the world. Once we have the paperwork process complete, we can then arrange flights back to the final destination wherever this may be. Not all airports are possible to reach, however if the destination airport is a long way from the final location, we can support with the onward transport also.
