Switzerland is a landlocked country located in Central Europe, with a population estimated to be around 8.5 million people. It is known for its picturesque landscapes, high-quality healthcare system, and neutrality. Switzerland has four official languages, including German, French, Italian, and Romansh.

The presence of British or Irish people in Switzerland is relatively significant due to its reputation as a global financial and business hub, as well as its scenic beauty and quality of life. Many British or Irish expatriates choose to live in Switzerland for work opportunities in sectors such as banking, finance, pharmaceuticals, and international organizations. They contribute to the country's economy, engage in research and development, and add to the multicultural fabric of Swiss society.
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 Switzerland, Rosy International's Switzerland team is ready to assist in repatriating their remains (including ashes) back to the UK or Ireland. We can arrange collection from Zurich, Geneva, Basel, Lausanne, Bern or any other specified location in Switzerland.
Conversely, the Swiss community in the UK is relatively small. They may be dispersed across different regions, but London is likely to have a small Swiss community.
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 Switzerland, if needed. In the subsequent sections, we will delve into the process of bringing your loved one back to Switzerland from the UK or Ireland.

Why repatriate a body/ashes back to Switzerland?

There are several reasons why you might wish to repatriate your loved one back to Switzerland, 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, Switzerland is a culturally diverse country with various burial practices. People may choose to be buried in Switzerland to be laid to rest in the place they considered home, honor their Swiss identity, and participate in local funeral customs. Regardless of the reason we are here to help.
