Visa Information

Finland is part of the Schengen area. The necessary travel documents are defined by the Schengen Agreement and they depend on the citizenship of the traveller. Please check your home country on the list of The Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland. As a general rule, foreign nationals who require an entry visa are requested to apply for one from the diplomatic mission that represents Finland in their home country at least two weeks before planned traveling date (at least one month recommended). The visa application should include an invitation letter, which can be obtained after the payment of the registration fee is confirmed. Please contact the event coordinator at ndm15@jyu.fi for issuing the invitation letter. Read more about applying a visa on The Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland web pages
