The ESVD-ECVD and/or its agents have the right for any reason beyond their control to alter or cancel, without prior notice, the congress or any of the arrangements, timetables, plans or other items relating directly or indirectly to the Annual Congress of the ESVD-ECVD. The Organizing Committee and the Congress Secretariat shall not be liable for any loss, damage, expenditure or inconvenience caused as a result of such alteration or cancellation.

An exhibition of veterinary pharmaceutical products, pet food, clinical and scientific equipment and publications will take place in Hall F of the congress centre. Companies interested in taking part in the exhibition can contact the Congress Secretariat.

Letter of Invitation
The Congress Secretariat will send you a letter of invitation upon request. The Organizing Committee would like to clearly state that the letter is only to help the participant to obtain a visa or to raise travel funds and has no further financial obligations from the congress towards the participant. The Congress Secretariat is only able to send you the letter of invitation after receipt of your registration and payment. 

Upon registration, participants agree that neither the Organizing Committee nor the Congress Secretariat assume any liability. Participants should, therefore, organize their own health and travel insurance. 

Mobile Phone Manners 
As a courtesy to other attendees, please observe good mobile phone manners. When attending sessions, please turn off your mobile phone and other wireless communications or use the silent notifications options. If you must take a call, please step out of the room rather than disrupting the event. Thank you for your cooperation. 

Passport and Visa

For EU citizens:

Being an EU citizen means that you have the right to work, study or live in Sweden without having a residence permit. You'll need a valid national identity card or passport when entering Sweden from another Schengen EU country. A driving licence don't qualify as a travel document and we recommend that you bring your passport in case you will need to prove your identity. More information about travelling within the EU can be found at the European commission's website. 

For UK residents:

Holders of certain British Passports/Travel Documents do not need a visa to travel to Sweden. Your passport should be valid for the proposed duration of your stay; you don’t need any additional period of validity on your passport beyond this. For information about what happens if the UK leaves the European Union with no deal and any other travel advice or updates please check the FCO website for information

For US residents:

A valid passport entitles United States citizens to a three-month stay in Sweden.

Tourist visas to Sweden for other countries:

If you are visiting Sweden as a tourist and are a citizen of a non-EU country, you may need a visa. A visa is a permit to travel to and stay in a country for a limited period.
