Everyone entering Finland must have a valid passport, or if traveling within the Schengen Area, EU countries and Switzerland: a photo identification complying with EU standards and allowing international travel. Visitors are advised to check what form of ID is required by their airline carrier before travelling. Some airlines within Europe will only accept passport identification.
Visas are required by delegates travelling from some countries. We would encourage all delegates to check the requirements for their originating country. The Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland has primary responsibility for Finland’s immigration and visa policy. For more information on visa requirements for Finland please see their website
Delegates who require a visa will require a letter of booking confirmation from the conference office. Once your registration has been completed and paid in full we would be delighted to issue this letter for you. Please email the conference office at [email protected]. Please note that we cannot issue a letter until your registration and payment is completed in full. It is advisable that you have booked and paid for accommodation for the duration of your stay. This should be included with your visa application.
