Understanding repatriation costs

The cost of repatriating a deceased person back to their home country starts from $8,000.00 and can go up to $15,000.00.

These figures are indicative and subject to variation as each airline and consulate has different pricing structures and requirements.

Repatriations are also influenced by factors such as airline policies, consulate requirements, destination distance, health regulations, and the level of service requested.

At Bellrae, we are committed to providing clear, transparent pricing to avoid unexpected costs.

Additional services and considerations

Funeral service

The repatriation cost typically does not include the funeral service, burial or cremation in the destination country, which are usually arranged by the family separately.

Travel insurance

Insurance may cover the cost of flying an immediate family member from overseas to assist with arrangements, but repatriation coverage varies, so advice from the insurer is recommended.

Custom arrangements

Special circumstances or requests to accommodate family wishes may affect the total cost.
