Death in hospital

In that case, the death certificate will be issued by the doctor at the hospital. Almost all hospitals have a cold room where the deceased person can usually stay for up to 3 days. In such a situation, there are no costs for an emergency collection.

Please notify us immediately after you have made the decision whether it should be a transfer to Poland or cremation.

What's next?

Even if it is difficult for you, there are many things to think about. We take care of the formalities for you and help you where necessary.

Please also prepare the clothes for the deceased.

Then you should decide on the type of burial. Should it be a transfer to Poland and a burial, or a cremation with an urn transfer?

If you have any questions, please call us anytime!

Documents Required to Obtain Death Certificates

In order to get accurate information about the required documents for the transport of the body, we need to know where the death occurred. Each country has its own procedures and requirements regarding overseas repatriation.

If we know the place of death, we can provide you with detailed information and request the necessary documents from national and international authorities.

First, you will receive a form that authorizes us to process your case and contains all the necessary information about the deceased (personal data, place of residence, place of death). Once the form is returned to us, we will begin the entire return of the body to the country. Registration documents required for a death certificate are: birth certificate and marriage certificate (if applicable to the deceased). If you do not have the necessary documents, we can apply for them at the relevant registry office. Another document is the death certificate, on the basis of which we apply for a permit to transport and burial a deceased person in our country.
