Travel

Travel documents: In addition to the documents needed to enter Finland, you will need appropriate travel documents to enter Stockholm (Sweden) because part of the conference takes place on a cruise ship that goes to Stockholm. The documents will be checked upon boarding the cruise ship.

Both Finland and Sweden are Schengen states and thus generally have a common visa policy.

If you need an invitation letter for visa application, please indicate that on the registration form or contact the conference organisers by email (amoc@helsinki.fi). Please note that an invitation letter can be sent to you only if you have completed conference registration.

COVID-19 guidelines: For up-to-date information about requirements to enter Finland, please see the webpage of The Finnish Border Guard. As for entering Sweden, the up-to-date information can be found on the webpage of The Swedish Police.
