If a friend or a relative dies while abroad, your nearest consulate will be ready to help you with the procedures involved in registering the death and shipping the body home.
- It is essential that you register the death in the country where the person dies. This can usually be done through the Ministry of Health of the country of residence, however make sure to call us if you are confused as to where to do this.
- Once you have obtained the death certificate be sure to get it ratified at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the country where the death had occurred. Once you have done so, get it ratified by your closest Bahraini mission.
- At this point we will be able to help you find the best possible route of getting the body back home, and inform you about any costs this might entail.
Throughout this process please do call your nearest consulate if you have any query or need any assistance. We will be available to support you as best as we can.
