Repatriation: What happens when someone dies in Portugal?

Repatriation: What happens when someone dies in Portugal?It’s probably the last thing you want to think about when you’re enjoying your new life in the Portuguese sun – but if you’re a British expat living in Portugal, it’s important to think about what would happen when you or someone close to you passes away.

Funerals in Portugal are very different from those in the UK. They often happen within 48 hours, and any delay can mean extra mortuary fees paid by the day. Plus there’s the unfamiliar customs and language barrier to deal with.
