What are the costs of repatriation from Tasmania to Germany?

If a death occurs in Tasmania, we are able to work with our local partners to repatriate the deceased back 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 Tasmania, any outstanding treatment costs from the hospital in Tasmania, and our services to the desired airport or cemetery.

The costs here are roughly between 4500 ? and can go up to a high 5-digit range if there are still outstanding treatment costs from the clinic.


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

Yes, we always manage the transfer of the deceased to Tasmania 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 at your disposal at all times and are at your side as an experienced, reliable and competent partner in the event of a body transfer to Tasmania.
