Repatriation to Slovakia        


To repatriate a Deceased to Slovakia is not as simple as some other countries in the region. As no airlines fly human remains directly to Slovakia the Deceased has to be transported to either Budapest Airport in Hungary or Vienna Airport in Austria. Then in turn by road to Slovakia to their final resting place.

This final journey can be performed by the Funeral Director in Slovakia or if they are reluctant to perform this duty, which in our experience is usually the case, we can arrange our own agent to do this.

We have a member of staff that speaks Slovak that can talk to your local Funeral Director if language is a problem.

It is very important that we have the Deceased' Slovakian ID Card.

We offer a full international repatriation service to Slovakia including:

  • Advice on all aspects of repatriation relating to:
    • UK authorities
    • Slovakian Authorities
    • All major airlines
  • Translation of key documents
  • Preparation of the deceased
  • Provision of a zinc-lined coffin or casket conforming to international shipping regulations (choices available)
  • Travel to the Embassy of Slovakia, two visits required
  • Documentation delivery service for Coroners 'out of England'
  • Freight booking services, airway bill production and booking of family tickets (special rates usually apply)
  • Collection and delivery service throughout the UK 24 hrs per day, 7 days week.
  • Full use of our newly refurbished Chapel of Rest
