Funeral Repatriation from France

If countries had charisma, France would be one of the leaders. Majestic, elegant, historical, so it is not surprising that Ukrainians consider France as a place to make a decent living for themselves and their families in Ukraine. The loss of a loved one is grief for relatives, especially when it happens abroad, so if a Ukrainian dies in France, the following actions must be taken.

1) Notify the authorities that a death has occurred.

If you are not in a hospital or hospice at the time of death, call 911 immediately so that death can be legally pronounced. If a person one is in hospital or under hospice care, this task is usually left to healthcare professionals

If a person was in emigration and died, the following actions must be taken.

Call the "hotline" number of the Embassy of Ukraine in the French Republic + 33 143 06 07 37. Find out from the Consul the circumstances of the death, also ask for a list of funeral companies engaged in international transportation of the deceased. The main mission of the Embassy of Ukraine is to protect against cynicism in the field of funeral services. Our cooperation with the Consular Department of the Embassy of Ukraine in France guarantees fast, legal and responsible transportation of a deceased relative from France to Ukraine.

2.) Arrange transportation by calling our ritual company.

Get a free consultation on the registration of death documents in the French Republic  and assistance with the transportation of a coffin with the body of the deceased or an urn with ashes. We do not need the presence of relatives and friends in the French Republic to transport your close person to Ukraine. Just give us a permission-order, which will allow us to take all the necessary actions on the territory of the French Republic, in order to transport the body of the deceased from abroad to Ukraine.


3.) Notify family and close friends of the death.

You can ask someone with these people to tell others.

4.) Notify the employer if the deceased was still employed.

Ask about salary balances, life insurance, benefits, or any other job-related details you might need.

5.) Find the will and any pre-planned wishes of the deceased relative.
