By plane
While Innsbruck is not on major international flight paths, the main European carriers serve the airport, which lies 4 km to the west of the city. Internal flights from other Austrian cities arrive and depart daily. From the airport buses run every 20 minutes to the city centre. Taxis are also available and cover the distance to town in about 20 minutes.

By train
There are trains that come into Austria from Venice, Munich and Zurich every day. The services are frequent and you may have up to six trains a day coming in from the above cities. The train network is excellent in Austria and there are connections to Salzburg and Vienna. The Hauptbahnhof or the main station is located at Südtiroler Platz. Opposite of the Grandhotel Europa


APPLY EARLY! The congress secretariat offers an official letter of invitation for Meeting attendees. The letter of invitation, though not required for the visa application, can assist as a supporting document. Present this letter of invitation from Focus Valve to the consular officer during the visa interview. This letter by no means guarantees admittance into Austria, but can provide compelling evidence for immigration officials to consider.
