Accreditation for events
Journalists can use the centralised on-line accreditation system of the Federal Press Service to be accredited for all the important events in Austria for which accreditation is compulsory.
You should submit your application for accreditation to these events as soon as possible – please mind the time limit given in the note to your media organisation!
On-line accreditation for certain events
After sending your email address you will receive your personal password by return, giving you access to the list of events as well as to the media accreditation form (application form).
To complete the process successfully you are required to attach a recent digital coloured photograph and to fill in the data of your valid press card. Instead of your press card you may also attach a letter from your media organisation confirming your personal assignment for the particular event (letter of endorsement). These attachments must be sent in jpg (for the photograph), doc or pdf format (maximum 150 KB). Please don’t forget to tick the event you want to attend in the list of events.
Note: The application form only has to be filled in once. Your personal password allows you to change or add data to your application form at any time (e.g. register for another event).
Please be aware that your data are submitted to an accuracy check as well as to a security check. You can be sure that your data are treated with the highest standards of security and confidentiality.

Issue of badges
A separate accreditation badge is issued for each event. This badge then allows you to attend all the parts of the agenda set up in the letter to your media organisation. The badge will only be handed out upon presentation of a valid press card or the original letter of endorsement from your media organisation. The badge is non-transferable and must always be worn visibly during the event. Furthermore you must be ready to prove identity at all times by means of an official document with a photograph.
Please collect your accreditation badge at the times given in the letter to your media organisation at the
