With thousands of successfully completed shipments all over the world, Advent can get your family member home safely and swiftly. Whether your destination is in Latin America, Africa, Europe, the Middle East or Asia, we have the knowledge, skill, and understanding to expedite the legal requirements to securely return your loved one to their native soil.
We are specialists in navigating the consular requirements of El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Mexico, Bolivia, Brazil, Ecuador, Nigeria, the Congo, Kenya and Cote d’Ivoire.
Advent has arranged secure passage for thousands of people over the last 25 years. Whether it’s Central or South America, Europe, Asia, Africa or the Middle East, Advent’s experienced team coordinates with the embassies, the State Department, and the airlines to get your family member home safely and promptly.
We can also help you cut through the red tape. Unlike other funeral homes, we handle all of the paperwork and flight schedules ourselves. For example, we know that most embassies will minimally require the passport of the person to be shipped, a non-contagious disease certification from the local health department, and various documents from the funeral home.
Many funeral homes don’t have the experience or the patience to take care of these details on their own, so they use a third-party agent to obtain the permits and make the flight arrangements, adding another level of expense, complexity, and delay.
Advent makes it simple. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to get that treasured family member to their final resting place.
