Repatriation of the deceased, process and requirements

Spanish legislation requires an authorised funeral company such as Áltima to be hired for the transfers of the deceased, both nationally and internationally.

In order to carry out this process to a different country the following documentation must also be provided so that Áltima can begin the process:

  • Identity document of the destination of the deceased.
  • In the case of natural death, a medical death certificate.

If cremation is chosen, included in the requirements for the transfer of ashes, the following documents must be provided:

  • Identity document of the destination of the deceased.
  • Cremation certificate (issued by the funeral home itself)

These documents will be requested at airport security. It is also necessary to take into account all current legislation in order to be able to move the ashes between each destination country. 

We have a team specialised in transfers and repatriations. Keeping up-to-date with all documentation requirements in each country of destination, allows us to facilitate and assist you in all the formalities of the process
