What We Can Do For You

Don't worry - we at Slaters International are prepared for a National Lockdown due to Coronavirus and are here to help

How has the COVID-19 Coronavirus affected Repatriation?

On Saturday 31st October 2020, the UK Government announced another National Lockdown to come into effect on Thursday 5th November 2020. During the first Lockdown in March 2020, many flights internationally were cancelled, or placed onto a slim-lined schedule and certain countries put bans on inbound flights causing Repatriations to these destinations to be delayed considerably.

Recently, Repatriations to most destinations were still possible, but there are still a number of destinations that are still currently closed. Due to the recent announcement of a new National Lockdown, we need to prepare for the worst case scenario, based on the issues we faced during the first lockdown.

How have Slaters prepared for this?

We are providing all of our clients with the option for their loved one to remain in our care for up to three months with no additional charges made. This means that your loved one will be cared for within our state-of-the-art facilities until flights are available for them to be repatriated. Our Embalmer will also be at hand to tend to your loved one over the period if necessary.

What if your loved one died with Coronavirus?

In most circumstances, this won't be a problem. We can still carry out the full embalming process and issue a company Free from Infection Certificate, confirming that your loved ones body won't pose any risk to health, which will be accepted by most Consular Offices when issuing a permit for Repatriation.
