Travel information

Do you need a visa?

Citizens of the E.U., Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Andorra, Vatican, Iceland, Monaco, Norway, San Marino, Israel,  Turkey, Mongolia, the U.S., Canada, Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Argentina,  Paraguay and the Commonwealth of Independent States (except Turkmenistan)  can stay in Ukraine up to 90 days within a 180 day period without visa.

However, we strongly encourage you to check visa requirements before your travel.

If you do require a visa for your entry to Ukraine (please check here), the organizing committee can issue letters of invitation.

For security reasons, letters of invitation can only be sent to bona fide individuals who have registered for the conference.

If you do not get a visa, we will fully refund participation fee, excluding transaction fees.

How can I get from the airport?

Most international flights land at Boryspil International Airport (KBP), 37 km (21 miles) east of the city.

We advise that you order transfer from your hotel or take a taxi upon your arrival (by ordering it at the arrivals’ lounge rather than hailing a cab on the street).
