How body repatriation to Jamaica works
At Homeland International we provide everything required for the repatriation of remains to Jamaica. Typically, repatriation usually takes between 5 to 7 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.
