Welcome to UNFCCC Online Registration

UNFCCC Online Registration System is an instrument that supports the nomination of participants for the UNFCCC sessions.

It allows each individual seeking accreditation as media to create a personal account, enter personal data and upload required documentation e.g. letter of assignment. Status information on the requested accreditation will also be available through the system.

Accreditation online is the official channel to obtain registration for the media for a conference or event. The secretariat will not accept accreditations via any other channel.

All media must be accredited for each conference or event; previous approved accreditations do not apply. That said, media that have previously been duly accredited to UNFCCC conferences will be able to retrieve their personal data by logging into their account and uploading a new letter of assignment and copy of a valid press card, if it has expired since the last conference.

Further information (Frequently Asked Questions)


Media accreditation for UNFCCC conferences is strictly reserved for members of the press (print, photo, radio, TV, film, news agencies and online media) who represent a bona fide media organization (formally registered as a media organization in a country recognized by the United Nations General Assembly). Accreditation will only be given on proof of a track record of reporting for media organizations on international affairs, specifically climate change.

  1. In order to complete the process you will need the information detailed below. All information must be as it appears in the passport or other official photo identification document which the participant intends to present at the registration desk.
  2. How do I create an account?
  3. Please use this link to request account creation. Once you request account creation, you will receive an e-mail with the confirmation link. Please follow the link and finish account creation procedure. You will receive another e-mail with your login name, password and further instructions.

    The online system recognizes only valid e-mail addresses.

  4. What else do I need to do?
  5. Accreditation requests must be supported by the following documents:

    Materials are scanned into a graphics format (.pdf, .gif, jpg, .tif) and uploaded into the system. This replaces the previous system of submitting accreditation documents via e-mail. The secretariat will not accept materials sent separately by e-mail.

    If there are any problems with your application, or additional information is needed, you will be contacted.

  6. How long does it take to get accredited?
  7. Applications are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and applicants should check their profile for the status of their application.

    Every effort will be made to process the accreditation as soon as possible; however, please be aware that we receive credentials for thousands of applicants and there may be a delay between the time we receive your credentials and when they are processed.

    Delays in processing the application could occur:

    Please check the status of your application online, in the personal profile that you created.

  8. My accreditation was approved, now what?
  9. Once you have received confirmation of your accreditation, you will be registered for the conference. Print out the Registration Acknowledgement Form and bring it with you to the conference (alternatively you can show Registration Acknowledgement Form at the registration desk from your mobile device).

    You may collect your badge on-site at the media registration desk at the conference venue. Registration usually opens the weekend before the meeting starts.

    Your photo will be taken at the registration station; it is not necessary to send a photo in advance.

    You must present the same valid photo ID as used in your profile.


The names and information entered are for purposes of identification and verification only. Required information is used for accreditation and statistical purposes and will not be published for general access. This information will be retained in the system for use at future sessions, unless a written request to remove it is received from the media concerned.

Letters of assignment and copies of press cards are not retained. For each meeting a new letter of assignment must be submitted and copy of a valid press card, if it has expired since the last meeting.

You may log in if you already have account.
