Frequently asked Questions:
How much does it cost to transport a body from abroad?
We coordinate the costs individually with each customer. The price depends primarily on the distance (place of death, current location of the body, destination in Poland), the cause of death (requirement to obtain appropriate documents) and which services of our company you choose in addition.
Does possession of the European Health Insurance Card allow the body to be transported from abroad?
The EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) entitles you to free basic medical care during your stay abroad. However, this insurance does not cover the cost of transporting the body of a deceased person..
My darling has left abroad, what should I do first?
Please contact our company first. We will give you all the information you need during the first interview. Please prepare the basic data of the deceased person at the beginning: name, surname, time and place of death, marital status. The next step is to sign the appropriate powers of attorney and documents that will allow us to bring the body to the place of the last farewell.
What documents are required ex officio for divorced or widowed persons?
If you do not have copies, we can obtain a birth certificate and a marriage certificate from the Polish registry office for each deceased person with permission. In the case of a widowed person, you will also need a death certificate of the spouse, which we can also obtain as part of the proxy. In the case of a divorced person, you must also obtain a copy of the divorce decree.
How long does it take to bring the body of a deceased person to Poland?
The formalities for organizing the necessary permits and documentation usually take about 2-3 working days. The transport itself takes an additional 2-4 days. The timing of transporting the body of a deceased or an urn with ashes also depends on the country from which the transport is made.

Is it possible to scatter the ashes of a loved one in Poland?
The term “human ashes” does not appear in the Cemeteries and Burial of the Dead Act of 1959. Accordingly, ashes are treated as bodies and human remains and are subject to special protection. The scattering of ashes in Poland is impossible. Each urn must therefore be buried in a grave in the cemetery.
Important! A change in the law on the burial of the deceased is imminent. We will keep our website updated as to what exactly will change.
