If you wish to attend an event under the Slovak Presidency that is taking place in Reduta, you must obtain accreditation for the Slovak Presidency as well as approval of your registration for each event.
Important: If you are a citizen of a non-EU country, please check whether you need a visa to enter Slovakia. It is your responsibility to ensure you are in possession of a valid visa. Being granted accreditation in no way implies that a journalist has been, or will be, granted a visa. Visas must be arranged separately from the accreditation procedure and well in advance.
Applications for accreditation and registration may only be submitted via our website: media.eu2016.sk.
In your application for accreditation you must provide information about yourself and upload a facial image and a scan of your press card or commissioning letter from your editor-in-chief.
You must submit your application for accreditation no later than 21 days prior to the first event that you wish to attend.
Any change in your personal details will result in the loss of your accreditation.
Registration for the first events will already begin at the same time as accreditation; you are therefore advised to register in good time. Once your details have been verified, a decision on your accreditation will be made. Upon successful accreditation you will receive an email stating where you can collect your access badge.
After a security check and approval of your accreditation, you will be able to register separately for each event. Your profile will be stored in a central database. Registration for events closes 10 days prior to the beginning of the event concerned.
Any change to the data held in your profile will result in the loss of accreditation already granted and any registration already approved.
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. You are therefore advised to obtain accreditation and registration well in advance.
You can collect your access badge upon entering Reduta at least several hours prior to the scheduled event. You must collect your access badge in person and present photographic proof of identity (passport or identity card). You are also required to present your press card or a commissioning letter from your editor-in-chief.
You must wear your access badge at all times while in the press centre, ensuring that it is clearly visible. In addition, please carry proof of identity on you at all times in case you are asked to present it during a check. If you lose your access badge you must immediately report the loss to the staff at the press centre. An access badge that has been lost will be blocked and you will receive a new one.
