​Media representatives covering the inter-parliamentary meetings held in Helsinki must complete their accreditation request via the online accreditation system at the latest two weeks before the meeting starts. To allow sufficient time for a possible (standard level) security clearance, we invite you to complete your accreditation well in advance. 

A single accreditation is sufficient to gain access to one or more meetings in Helsinki.

How to get accredited for inter-parliamentary meetings


Make sure you have all the necessary documents ready in digital format before you start the online application process. Please note that the enclosures should not exceed 10 Mb.

  • One passport-size colour photograph in JPEG format (for the accreditation badge)
  • Scanned colour photocopy of the personal data page of your passport or identity card in JPEG, PNG or PDF format
  • Scanned colour photocopy of a valid journalist card for the EU institutions or for the Eduskunta, if you have one, in JPEG, PNG or PDF format

Check that your details are correct. Confirm your details and send the application. You will receive an acknowledgement of receipt by email.

​You will receive a separate email informing you that your accreditation application has been accepted or refused. 

We recommend that you save this message, as you may need it when you collect your accreditation badge.
