What to do when a person dies abroad and his relative are interested to bury him in Israel?

When a person dies across the border and the family members wish to have him buried in Israel, you can contact us directly or through the insurance company. 

We are engaged in treatment, preparation, and accompaniment for a funeral, thus trying to reduce the suffering that comes with grief and loss even a little. 

After we receive a private request or through the insurance company, we make contact with the company’s representative who is at the same destination abroad, and from that moment we begin to initiate the steps of the process to complete the transfer and everything it requires. In the first step, we handle the requirements for issuing the necessary certificates in the deceased’s country of origin. Certificates These are approvals from government bodies and therefore require familiarity with the process, the language, and the local bureaucracy. At the same time, we also work in Israel with the Kadisha company and with an ambulance to transfer the body from the airport to the burial place, to obtain the necessary approvals in Israel. 

To transport the body in its entirety, it must undergo an embalming procedure, and in the case of the death of a Jewish person, purification must also be performed. We perform embalming, purification, and body preparation as required by the relevant airline. We handle the transfer of the body by flight, through customs, and security on the way to Israel.

If desired and necessary, the society conducts the necessary ceremonies, and in the case of a deceased Jew who has flown abroad, the society performs purification.
