The official language of the congress is English.

Passports and Visa

Valid passports are required for entry into Belgium. Participants should check with their agents whether they would require a visa for travel to Belgium. If so they are advised to apply to the nearest Belgium Embassy or Consulate at least two months before the intended day of travel.


Liabilities for personal injuries, losses or damages to personal belongings remain the responsibility of the individual. The organizers are also not responsible for delays or any modification in the programme due to unforeseen circumstances. Please check the validity of your personal insurance.

8th EEHNC awarded credit points:
KNMvD: 2 for the workshop, 4.5 for the Thursday congress programe and 5.5 for the Friday program
Orde der Dierenartsen: 17.5 credit points (2 day congress programme including workshops)
