How body repatriation to Uganda works

At Homeland International we provide everything required for the repatriation of remains to Uganda. Typically, repatriation usually takes between 7 to 10 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.

We adhere to all consulate requirements and ensure all the paperwork is correct and meets the requirements of the airlines and airports. There are some papers which we will require from yourselves, the rest can be obtained by us. The details of this are as follows.
