I have been contacted by someone whose brother has died in Vietnam. He was living there and married there. The only connection to here was that he was a British Citizen.
The Vietnamese authorities are insisting that his next of kin (who they are recognising as her mother, here in the UK) to make contact by going over there in person! For some reason, they don’t seem to recognise the wife as next of kin.
Can you recommend anyone that can provide assistance?
