Coffin transport and burial:

For a corpse transfer from abroad to Poland, for example, a wooden coffin with a metal insert is used. The metal insert is in the wooden coffin and must be sealed airtight for transport. As soon as the wooden coffin is closed, the metal insert is no longer visible.

According to the regulations of the Polish Board of Health, the coffin may not be opened any more.

The wooden coffins are mostly made of pine or oak wood, the quality of the wood and the processing determine the price of the coffin. A corpse transport from abroad to Poland takes up to 2 working days with us, together with the completion of all formalities. (Since the offices are closed on weekends, there may be delays here).
