Laissez-passer to transport a deceased person abroad
You may transport a deceased person from the Netherlands to another country with a laissez-passer (transport ticket). The municipality has to grant approval for this transport. The laissez-passer states the name of the deceased and the place to which they are being taken.
You can arrange a laissez-passer at the Overlijdensloket at City Hall Spui.
An undertaker asks the municipality for permission to transport the body abroad.
