Managing the practicalities and paperwork

Managing the practicalities and paperwork

Where we can, we arrange all the required documents for you, including:

  • Obtaining a Notification of Death (BI-1663) from the relevant authorities
  • Obtaining the death certificate from the Department of Home Affairs
  • Obtaining the required documentation for burial or cremation


For international repatriation, we liaise with the relevant embassy or consulate as well as with the South African Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) to obtain the necessary permits.
