Ethiopia is a country located in East Africa, with a population estimated to be around 118 million people. It is known for its rich history, diverse landscapes, and cultural heritage. The official languages spoken in Ethiopia are Amharic and English.

The presence of British or Irish people in Ethiopia is significant due to historical ties, development projects, and tourism. Many British or Irish expatriates live in Ethiopia for work, particularly in sectors such as education, healthcare, and development aid. They contribute to the local economy, engage in cultural exchange, and appreciate the historical sites, traditional cultures, and natural wonders of Ethiopia.
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 Ethiopia, Rosy International's Ethiopia team is ready to assist in repatriating their remains (including ashes) back to the UK or Ireland. We can arrange collection from Addis Ababa, Dire Dawa, Mekelle, Gondar, Adama or any other specified location in Ethiopia.
Conversely, ethiopians can be found in cities such as London, Birmingham, Manchester, 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 Ethiopia, if needed. In the subsequent sections, we will delve into the process of bringing your loved one back to Ethiopia from the UK or Ireland.

What happens when Ethiopians die in the UK or Ireland?

If your loved one is an Ethiopians 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 Ethiopia, 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 Ethiopia?

There are several reasons why you might wish to repatriate your loved one back to Ethiopia, 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, Ethiopian culture is deeply rooted in religious and cultural traditions. Many Ethiopians choose to be buried in their home country to honor their Ethiopian Orthodox Christian heritage, participate in traditional burial customs, and be laid to rest in sacred lands. Regardless of the reason we are here to help.

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