A death should be registered in the city where the person has died. Most of the time the undertaker takes care of this, but you can also do this yourself.
When someone died, the municipality where the person died must be informed. This also applies to a stillborn child. Usually the funeral service provider does this on behalf of the relatives. You can report a death via "eHerkenning" via the 'apply online' link below. If you do not have "eHerkenning", you can also make an appointment at the Stadswinkel.
You may transport a deceased from abroad to the Netherlands or from the Netherlands to abroad. You need a death certificate for this purpose. In addition, you will need a 'laissez-passer' or 'leave for burial or combustion'.
