Colombia is a country located in South America, with a population estimated to be around 50 million people. It is known for its diverse landscapes, including the Andes Mountains, the Amazon rainforest, and vibrant cities like Bogotá and Medellín. The official language spoken in Colombia is Spanish.

The presence of British or Irish people in Colombia is significant due to historical ties, economic opportunities, and tourism. Many British or Irish expatriates live in Colombia for work, particularly in sectors such as oil and gas, tourism, and development projects. They contribute to the local economy, engage in cultural exchange, and appreciate the natural beauty and cultural diversity of Colombia.
In the event of the most unfortunate circumstances, should an individual from England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Ireland, or any non-native origin pass away in Colombia, Rosy International's Colombia team is ready to assist in repatriating their remains (including ashes) back to the UK or Ireland. We can arrange collection from Bogotá, Medellín, Cali, Barranquilla, Cartagena or any other specified location in Colombia.
Conversely, colombians can be found in cities such as London, Manchester, Birmingham, and Glasgow.
In the event of the passing of your beloved in any of the mentioned cities above or elsewhere, we stand ready to assist you in repatriating your loved ones remains to Colombia, if needed. In the subsequent sections, we will delve into the process of bringing your loved one back to Colombia from the UK or Ireland.

What happens when Colombians die in the UK or Ireland?

If your loved one is an Colombians national and died in the UK or Ireland, it is essential to register the death with the local council to obtain the official death certificate. Should you desire to lay your loved one to rest in Colombia, you would need to contact an International Funeral Director, such as ourselves, to initiate the repatriation process back to Afghanistan.

Why repatriate a body/ashes back to Colombia?

There are several reasons why you might wish to repatriate your loved one back to Colombia, especially if they were just visiting the UK or Ireland. In such cases, we strongly advise reaching out to the travel insurance company as they typically provide financial assistance. Other reasons why you may prefer repatriating your loved one back to Afghanistan include, Colombian culture often emphasizes family and community ties. People may choose to be buried in Colombia to be laid to rest among their loved ones, maintain connections with their homeland, and participate in Colombian funeral traditions. Regardless of the reason we are here to help.

Please be aware that repatriating a body to Colombia, usually requires the deceased to be an citizen or originate from Colombia.
