Instructions for an Inter-Country Visit to Finland

Confirming Travel Plans

After receiving the Fulbright Finland Inter-Country Award letter and signing the Fulbright Finland Terms document, the Finnish host and the U.S. Fulbrighter should proceed with the confirmation and reservations of the scholar’s flights to Finland. Once the schedule and cost has been confirmed, please notify Fulbright Finland and the Fulbrighter's home country Fulbright Commission or Post of the details.

Please note:

  • Fulbright Finland Foundation does not cover business or first class tickets.
  • If the price of the flights has changed significantly since the submission of the application, please contact Fulbright Finland as soon as possible.
  • Fulbright Finland is not able to provide for insurance coverage for the duration of the trip to Finland or cover any additional costs resulting from the trip, unless agreed upon prior to travel. 

The Finnish host and the Fulbrighter must agree well in advance on local costs such as accommodation, meals, travel (including travel from the airport to the local accommodation) and other resulting expenses among themselves. 

Please fill out the bank information form before you travel to Finland and send it to the Program Coordinator Emilia Holopainen at [email protected]


At your earliest convenience after the trip, we look forward to hearing your feedback on your visit. The visiting scholar and the host institution are asked to send a short report on the visit within fourteen days of the end of the visit.

A short reports can be found here:

Please note that it will only take couple of minutes to finish the survey.

If there should be any media coverage or photos resulting from the visit, Fulbright Finland would very much appreciate you sharing those with us during or immediately after the visit.
