DEATH OF A CITIZEN AND REPATRIATION OF REMAINS
In the unlikely event involving the death of a Zambian national abroad, the High Commission assists in conveying the information to family members, as well as, assisting in the process of repatriating the remains of the dead. However, it should be noted that the High Commission does not cover any cost related to the whole process. Those needing the assistance of the High Commission should provide a copy of the death certificate and details of the Funeral Manager where applicable.
