UNFCCC Media Accreditation

The UNFCCC secretariat has been open for media accreditation for the UN Climate Change Conference in Marrakech since the beginning of July and has been processing a large volume of applications. The secretariat indicated a quota would be enforced, and that applications would be processed until the deadline of 17 October or when the quota was reached, whichever came first.

The deadline has now passed and the quota has been reached. Accreditations are now at the maximum level in relation to the physical capacity of the conference and media facilities, taking into account other participants and fire and security regulations.

Visas, filming licenses and importation of equipment

In line with your accreditation please note the following procedures for entry visas to Morocco and authorizations needed to conduct your work.
