New Zealand is a country located in the southwestern Pacific Ocean, with a population estimated to be around 5 million people. It is known for its stunning landscapes, including mountains, fjords, and pristine beaches. The official languages spoken in New Zealand are English, Maori, and New Zealand Sign Language.

The presence of British or Irish people in New Zealand is significant due to migration, education, and tourism. Many British or Irish individuals choose to live in New Zealand for its high quality of life, outdoor recreational opportunities, and natural beauty. They contribute to the local economy, engage in cultural exchange, and appreciate the diverse landscapes, Maori culture, and friendly Kiwi hospitality of New Zealand.
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 New Zealand, Rosy International's New Zealand team is ready to assist in repatriating their remains (including ashes) back to the UK or Ireland. We can arrange collection from Wellington, Auckland, Christchurch, Hamilton, Tauranga or any other specified location in New Zealand.
Conversely, new Zealanders can be found throughout the UK, with larger communities in cities such as London, Manchester, Birmingham, and Edinburgh.
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 New Zealand, if needed. In the subsequent sections, we will delve into the process of bringing your loved one back to New Zealand from the UK or Ireland.

What happens when New Zealanders die in the UK or Ireland?

If your loved one is an New Zealanders 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 New Zealand, 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 New Zealand?

There are several reasons why you might wish to repatriate your loved one back to New Zealand, 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, New Zealand has a diverse cultural landscape influenced by the indigenous Māori culture and various immigrant communities. While burial practices can vary among different communities and religions, individuals may choose to be buried in New Zealand to honor their cultural heritage, be laid to rest in familiar surroundings, and maintain a connection with their homeland. Regardless of the reason we are here to help.

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