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 Foundation 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 the Fulbright Finland Foundation and the Fulbrighter's home country Fulbright Commission or Post of the details.

Please note:

  • The 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 team as soon as possible.
  • The Foundation 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 and other resulting expenses among themselves.
