  • A letter of assignment from an organization's bureau chief or editor.
  • In some cases, journalists may be required to provide additional information to be granted accreditation.

Applicants should allow two days for their application to be processed. Accredited journalists will also be required to sign an undertaking to respect the terms of the Commission’s Media Protocol. Media accreditation is non-transferable.
