When Someone Has Died Overseas
Each year around 1,000 Australians die overseas, usually through illness or accident. The death of a loved one is always distressing for family and friends and when the death occurs overseas, this can make the circumstances even more difficult. Funeral arrangements can be particularly challenging when a loved one dies overseas. The following government link explains what to do if someone dies overseas.
