Top Definition
Repatriation(from late Latin repatriare - to restore someone to his homeland) is the process of return of refugees or soldiers to their homes, most notably following a war.
Repatriation also refers to the return of body parts to the nearest relative.
Economic repatriation - This refers to economic measures taken by a country to reduce foreign capital investment.
The term may also refer to the process of converting a foreign currency into the currency of one's own country. When foreign currency is converted back to the currency of the home country it is referred to as repatriation. An example would be an American converting British Pounds back to U.S. Dollars.
The government usually pays the cost of repatriation of the refugees.
