- Journalists in possession of a valid NATO permanent media pass do not need to request accreditation.
- Accreditation requests must be introduced online here: https://my.hq.nato.int/. Please find instructions on how to create a profile and/or register in Annex 1. Media representatives who have successfully been accredited will receive confirmation by email.
- Deadline for accreditation requests is no later than Tuesday 15 October 2019 at 23:59 (Brussels Time). Requests submitted after that are considered late and may be refused. Media representatives who have submitted a request for accreditation are encouraged to bring a print-out of the request confirmation. Late applications will not be taken into consideration for pool access.
- Media passes must be collected in person upon presentation of an ID card or passport and a valid national press pass (or assignment letter from a recognized media organization).
- Passes must be worn visibly at all times, and security personnel may ask to see another form of ID at any time. Security personnel will examine and may test equipment and personal effects carried onto the site. Please plan your visit to arrive with sufficient lead time to clear security checks.
