Frequently asked questions

Only completed applications will be considered. Delays could occur if the request does not have the required documents (copy of press card, letter of assignment) or is not submitted.

Once the request is approved, a confirmation will be sent to the e-mail address on file in the online account. You need to come in person to collect your media pass.

Please note that applying for accreditation does not guarantee registration to COP 24. The secretariat may, at any time and for safety and security reasons, put measures in place to manage the number of accredited media who are able to attend the conference.
