Parliament's International Relations Portfolio Committee says its critical for South Africans to know exactly what to do in situations of unfortunate incidents - such as deaths outside of the country.

This comes as the family of an Umlazi woman who died in the Bahamas is travelling to the Caribbean country for her cremation - after the Bahamian government refused to release her body for repatriation citing health concerns.

Nobuhle Bhengu had been working for the MSC cruise company and died after a short illness while abroad. 

Committee chairperson Siphosezwe Masango says South Africans need to familiarise themselves with a document known as Travel Smart -  and to also notify the embassy of their travels.

The document is available on website of the Department of International Relations and Cooperation at www.dirco.gov.za.
