 What is Emergency Repatriation?

Emergency repatriation is the sudden, unexpected return to one’s home country. It is typically required when a person becomes ill or injured while abroad and needs to be transported back to their home country for medical care.

Emergency repatriation can be a stressful and expensive process, so it is important to be prepared. There are a few things that you can do to make the process easier:

  • Make sure that you have travel insurance that includes medical repatriation coverage.
  • Pack a bag with essential items, such as medications, clothes, and toiletries.
  • Contact your embassy or consulate in the country where you are staying to let them know that you need emergency repatriation.
  • Work with a reputable company (like us) that specialises in medical repatriation.
