What documents are required for the transfer of the deceased to India?

The following documents are required for the repatriation of the deceased and urns to India:

  • Passport or identity card of the deceased in copy - scanned by email 

  • Data of the recipient person in India, if applicable, or the data of the accompanying person, if someone wants to fly on the same plane.

All other documents such as birth certificate for unmarried persons, marriage certificate for married persons, death certificate of the spouse for widowed persons etc. are only required for the final death certificate and can be conveniently submitted to the relevant registry office after the transfer of the deceased.

If documents are missing, a provisional death certificate is issued by the registry office, which can be used to transfer the body or urn to India without any problems.


What does it cost to transport a deceased person or urn to India?

The complete cost of repatriating a body or urn to India varies and depends on the following factors.

  • Place of death (travel costs)

  • Is it a coffin or urn transfer?
  • Airline freight costs (depending on the weight of the deceased) For urns, these are usually flat-rate costs from the airline.

  • Fees incurred at the hospital, registry office, cemetery, coroner's office, etc.

What are the costs for repatriation from India to Germany?

If a death occurs in India, we are able to cooperate with our local partners to repatriate the deceased to Germany. This is often associated with very high costs, so it always makes sense to take out travel health insurance.

The total costs are made up of the costs of the funeral director in India, any outstanding treatment costs from the clinic in India, and our services up to the desired airport or cemetery.


Will I always be kept up to date with the current status of processing?

Yes, we always handle the transfer of the deceased to India in close consultation with you so that you are always kept up to date. If you do not want this, please let us know in good time.


We are always at your disposal and are at your side as an experienced, reliable and competent partner in the event of a body or urn transfer to India.
