  • The last vaccination was less than six months ago (i.e. after 13. October 2021 for the conference in April)
  • Other measures may apply, such as wearing masks.

Some more details / updates on:

As our conference is run by volunteers - not being experts on international travel / health documents - we need to make the onboaring and entering the venue process simple. Therefore, we will have to reply on digital vaccination certificates that are easy to validate.
