General Information

Finland is a member of the European Union and is a part of the Schengen area. Citizens of EU countries do not need a visa, but a valid passport is required. Citizens of other countries kindly contact the nearest Finnish Embassy for further information. Also, please check visa formalities if you plan to visit the Russian Federation during your trip.

The congress organizers will send a proof of registration as soon as the full registration fee has been received. The confirmation document will serve as your invitation letter when applying for the visa.

The organizer will assist applicants if needed in the visa application process. If you know you will be needing visa for your entry in Finland, please start the application process in good time.

More information about visas for Finland, please see and further questions can be e-mailed to [email protected].


The registration fee does not cover any insurance (travel, medical, accident or liability). The CUPUM2021 organizers cannot accept liability for any loss or damage suffered by participants or accompanying persons or other persons during travel to and from the congress or during the congress. Participants of CUPUM2021 are advised to consider purchasing their own travel insurance and to extend their personal policy to cover personal possessions.
