Visa Application


Finland is part of the Schengen area. The Schengen states have jointly agreed which countries' citizens are required to present a visa. Each Schengen state decides which passports and travel documents it accepts from different countries' citizens.

Even if you did not need a visa to visit Finland, you need a valid passport or some other travel document accepted by Finland. It must be valid for at least ninety days after your intended date of departure from the Schengen area.

To check the visa requirement and travel documents accepted by Finland, please visit:
The Ministry for Foreign Affairs, Visa requirement.

Should you require a formal invitation letter to support a visa application, we will provide this to those who have had his/her presentation accepted for the conference. Please send a request to the Organizing Committee via email: ioha2018@jyu.fi with the following:

  • Full name
  • Date of birth
  • Nationality
  • Passport number
  • Affiliation
  • Address
  • Dates of travel to Finland
  • Title(s) of paper(s) submitted and/or conference booking number


Please note that the conference organizers, nor any of its partners, do not accept any responsibility for any financial loss relating to inability of an individual to obtain the required travel documents.
