Before submitting the details for accreditation, media representatives are requested to make sure they fulfil the criteria specified on the WTO website. Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have a  separate accreditation process. Delegations should apply through their designated channels.

Journalists and other media representatives are required to submit a scanned copy of the letter of assignment from their editor on an official letterhead and a digital passport photo. Once the application has been considered, a confirmation letter will be sent by e-mail. A detailed explanation of the accreditation procedure is available here.

Accreditation for attending the Ministerial Conference does not automatically grant entry into the United Arab Emirates and a visa might be required. Further information on visa requirements is available here.

Further information for the media is available here. Please refer back to this page for updates.
