How body repatriation to Ivory Coast works

At Homeland International we provide everything required for repatriation to Ivory Coast. Typically, repatriation usually takes between 10 to 16 days, however in certain situations such as if a coroner is involved this may extend the time frame slightly. Once in our care, our team will care for the person who has died, complete the embalming which is required for repatriation and prepare the coffin for international transportation.
