Safety has become the key word for the past one and a half years. Although we wish we would not have to keep on talking about the C-word, we still do.
We want to thank you for making this a safe festival and remind you that this can only be achieved if we all play our part.
Starting from October 25, according to the rules of the Estonian Health Board it is obligatory to present an internationally recognised certificate of full vaccination or document proving recovery from COVID-19 within the past six months to attend public events and visit various locations including conference centres, cinemas, theatres, restaurants etc. The certificate of negative PCR-test is not valid.

All passengers arriving to Estonia by plane must fill in the traveller’s questionnaire before arriving in Estonia. You can do this up to three days before arriving in Estonia. The border guard or the airline may ask for confirmation of the border crossing declaration sent by email either electronically or on paper: https://iseteenindus.terviseamet.ee/
Make sure you have health and travel insurance that covers medical treatment (costs of diagnosis, medications, hospital treatment) and extra accommodation, as well as flight ticket costs in case you become infected with Coronavirus.
Wearing a medical mask is required in all public places. The festival provides masks on the festival grounds - in the hotel, in cinemas etc. When meeting with the public we also offer to use a Respiray - an Estonian invention that works as an air purifier that can be worn around your neck and allows everyone to see your face when you talk. Your host or someone from the staff will be happy to show you how it works. You will also find another Estonian invention in your bag upon arrival - a nasal spray called Bioblock that is an additional preventative method to use and that protects you against the virus.
Keeping a safe distance and washing or sanitizing your hands is required and recommended.
To ensure your safety and the safety of all our guests we require everyone to take a rapid antigen test upon their arrival. We have set up a medical point in the hotel lobby where medical personnel will take your test every day from 9 am till 11 am. If you arrive past 11 am then you are required to take the test the following morning.
The cost of the test is only 5 euros and you will be issued a wristband. The test should be repeated after 4 days.
It is very important that you make sure whether your home country requires you to take a PCR test before your return flight. Every country has different requirements and therefore each guest is responsible to be aware of their own country’s rules and regulations.
A PCR test can be required to be no older than 72 or 48 hours (in some rare cases even 24 hours) prior to your return. Some countries may also accept a rapid antigen test. The test will be at your own cost.
Please fill this form regarding your country’s PCR test requirement latest by 12.11 so that we can send you the link where you can book your PCR test time.
