Press accreditation for Bratislava summit and other Presidency events in Slovakia

Press accreditation for Bratislava summit and other Presidency events in Slovakia

9.8.2016

In order to cover meetings organised in Bratislava during the Slovak presidency (informal Council meetings, the Bratislava summit, etc.) media must follow a two-step procedure.

Step 1: general accreditation valid for all events
This one-off step consists of a security check of your application. You must submit your application no later than 21 days prior to the first event you wish to attend. No late application is available.

This request can be introduced at any time, even if the event you wish to register for is not yet open (e.g. Bratislava summit). It is a one-off requirement, which entitles media representatives to a 6-month pass for all presidency events.

During the process you will be asked to provide your personal details and upload an ID type photo and a scan of your press card or commissioning letter from your editor-in-chief. Make sure that all data you provide are accurate.

Once your details have been verified, you will receive an email informing you of the outcome of your request. In case you do not receive this electronic confirmation, please, do not hesitate to contact media.skpres@mzv.sk or +421 908 674 501.

Step 2: registration for individual events
You can ask for registration in an event at the same time as your accreditation request or once it has been accepted. Registration for events closes 5 days prior to the beginning of the event concerned. The status of your registration request is available to you on your account that you have created. However, the presidency will be responsive to late or last-minute registrations for specific events, given that a reporter has done its accreditation on time.

At this stage, registration is already open for the following upcoming events:

  • Ministerial conference on the occasion of the European Day of Remembrance for the victims of totalitarian regimes (22 - 23 August)
  • Gymnich (2 - 3 September)
  • ECOFIN ( 9 - 10 September)
  • AGRIFISH (11 - 13 September)
  • "Bratislava summit" - Informal meeting of the 27 heads of state or government (16 September)
  • FAC/Trade (23 September)
  • Speakers of Parliament (6 October).

Important: Separate registration is required for each event. Media representatives will not be granted access to the event venue unless they have obtained accreditation and their registration has been duly approved. Neither accreditation nor registration is possible at the event venue.
