Transportation of the deceased from/to abroad

There is nothing more painful than the loss of a close person, however, when such misfortune occurs not in Lithuania relatives face not only grief but also various problems related with transportation of the remains and worries of filling documents. If a person who dies abroad is insured, the insurance company, which arranges all established documents and formalities for transportation of the remains, takes care of transportation of the remains.

On the other hand, if insurance is absent, all responsibility for transportation of the remains and payment for services falls on relatives of the deceased as Lithuanian diplomatic missions or consular offices abroad do not organize transportation and funeral of remains of citizens who died abroad. These services are a competence of our funeral services company.
