Exportation of Remains in a coffin
A zinc-lined coffin is required when remains are expatriated to a country outside the Nordic region. Embalming of remains is uncommon in Norway, and is only done in rare cases, for example if required by the receiving state if the remains are to be expatriated. If needed and it is required by the receiving state, we arrange for embalming.
Exportation of Ashes in an urn
If the exportation of the Ashes takes place by plane, a cremation certificate stating that the urn contains only the ashes is usually required by the airport authority. We arrange for this certificate as well as other needed documents.
