Before you start to fill in the form, please make sure you have a letter of assignment from your editor on official letterhead paper and a passport-style photo of yourself. Your application will be processed faster if you submit these electronically with the form below.
If you cannot supply these electronically, you may submit them in paper form by sending to

YOUR APPLICATION WILL NOT BE PROCESSED UNTIL THE LETTER OF ASSIGNMENT AND PHOTO ARE RECEIVED. You will then receive a confirmation of your accreditation by e-mail.
Please note that space is limited and priority will be given to journalists who submit their applications early.
