Booking press conferencesTop
Booking press conferences
Press/media representatives accredited to cover UNFCCC meetings are responsible for their own travel
and hotel bookings. The secretariat is not in a position to make these arrangements.
The Government of Denmark wishes to inform participants that they are strongly encouraged to register
through the Nordic Hotel Group (NHG) booking system to secure
their accommodation for Copenhagen. Transport and security will be provided during the conference based
on these bookings. If participants make their own accommodation arrangements, they run the risk of
excluding themselves from these arrangements.
The UNFCCC secretariat is not in a position to issue invitation letters for visa purposes. You may use
the confirmation of your accreditation when making your application.
All foreign delegates entering Denmark must have a valid passport. Participants requiring a visa for
Denmark, or a transit visa, are strongly encouraged to contact the appropriate consular authorities.
The issuance of a visa for the Schengen States may take up to two weeks from the date of submission of
the visa application. For more information, please visit the website of the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs of Denmark.
