The loss of a loved person is undoubtedly the most painful experience where the bereavement and grief must be combined with one’s strength and courage in order to enable them to make certain decisions relating to the organization of the funeral. The ceremony where we say our final goodbyes to our loved one is in fact a chance to pay our last respects to the deceased and it requires a certain preparation, delicate handling and dedication. All of the above however can be challenging especially when the funeral must take place in the deceased’s home country with so many international rules in effect for preparing, transporting, border crossing and caring for your loved one until s/he reaches their final resting destination. With our involvement, once your loved one arrives in Athens (Greece), the process is worry-free as we take care of everything. Following the repatriation, we handle the funeral and/or burial anywhere in Greece.

We are located in the district of Geraka, an eastern suburb of Athens and very close to the Athens Intl. Airport. Our office location particularly benefits those wishing to lay their loved one to rest in areas far away from Athens, as the deceased must first be picked up from the Athens airport "For your convenience, we have set up Toll Free telephone numbers in three major territories such as USA, Canada and Australia. You can call us 24/7."

Repatriation of a person’s remains (Step-By-Step)

In order for us to receive the remains of a deceased person from another country, the following actions must be taken:

  1. We must be in touch with the family and/or the funeral directors who are involved in the country where the person has died. These directors usually do all the preparations and arrangements for shipping the person’s remains to Greece. The preparations include the paperwork and certifications needed by their local Greek Consulate.
  2. Once ready, we need to receive a copy of all the documents (by email) which will accompany the deceased. This is necessary for us to properly prepare in order to receive the deceased when s/he arrives.
  3. If the family has already selected a casket abroad, then we need to have the exact measurements of the casket itself in order for our office to carry out any and all arrangements with the cemetery. Alternatively, a casket can be purchased from our office in Greece.
  4. If the family of the deceased already has a “family tomb” at a given cemetery, our office needs to know the details of its whereabouts as soon as possible. In all other cases, each municipality in Greece is responsible to provide a space for burial for a citizen registered in the same municipality. This space is typically rented for 3-4 years. After that time, the person’s remains must be exhumed. In areas outside of Athens, municipalities may also sell plots.
  5. At this point our office will coordinate and notify various local authorities such as inbound Customs Office, relevant Government departments, Municipality, local Church, Cemetery and a local reception hall where the family may offer the traditional coffee or a meal after the burial.
  6. When the deceased arrives (usually by plane), we pick him/her up from the airport (Customs) with our own transport vehicles along with the original documents accompanying the deceased.
  7. Our office will then provide whatever care your loved one will need along with placement in a special area until the funeral is carried out.
