Embalming slows down the deterioration process of mortal remains. It protects the skin from damage and keeps it fresh till the final rites of remains.

The embalmed body rests inside a wooden coffin box having metal linings at the corners and perfect sealing quality. The team ensures the sealing of the body according to international guidelines.

How does Last Journey team make arrangements for the final transfer of remains to India?

For airlifting the dead body from Portugal to India, a two-way air cargo service is the most beneficial. The team will book it for the coffin box carrying remains and flight tickets for the accompanying family members in repatriation.

If the deceased body is accompanied by only team members, the deceased's family needs to provide fundamental details (name, address, and contact number) of the receiver available in India. It will help us in delivering the remains to the doorstep of the receiver.
