Booking your flight
Before booking your flight, train or ferry, please carefully check the information about arrival days for your home university (the first university you will be attending). Book your ticket well in advance and check if a transit visa is needed for intermediate landing.
Category A scholarship holders can contact KTH if they need assistance with the travel arrangement to their first destination.
Airlines normally allow one piece of checked baggage up to 20 kg and one piece of hand baggage up to 5 kg. Carefully read the airline’s baggage information as charges for extra and overweight baggage often are high. We recommend sending heavy items and items such as winter clothing and extra linen by a cargo service. Please remember to schedule the delivery date of your parcel after your own arrival.
Upon arrival to the first European country (intermediate, or final destination), please make sure that your passport is duly stamped and dated.
