The Secretariat has posted a Media accreditation form on the CITES website http://www.cites.org/eng/cop/index.php. Media representatives are encouraged to register online as soon as possible.
Our accreditation procedures should be read in conjunction with UN-DPI policy for media accreditation http://www.un.org/en/media/accreditation/index.shtml. Please note that under UN policy, media accreditation is not accorded to the information outlets of non-governmental organizations, no double accreditation is allowed (e.g. as both press and delegate, or as both press and NGO).
In Bangkok, press passes can be picked up at the media accreditation counter upon presentation of identification (passport, official national press pass, driver's license, etc.) or of a photo press pass from any United Nations Centre.
