Death abroad Intheprocess of deaths on seagoing vessels

A death that has occurred abroad can also be registered in a German death register, i.e. registered, at your request. The so-called post-registration also applies to deaths on foreign seagoing vessels.

Deaths on foreign seagoing vessels are deaths abroad, with the specific feature that the place of death is a foreign seagoing vessel.

With the post-assessment, an entry in a German death register is made in addition to the registration abroad, i.e. in addition to the entry in the death register of the country in which the death occurs.

You can apply for the re-registration with the competent German registry office.
