ACUNS is able to request a temporary UN pass for ACUNS Members. Please fill out the ACUNS UN Grounds Pass Request Form at least two weeks before your temporary pass is needed. Available passes are limited in number, and we cannot guarantee always being able to provide an access pass.

Once your grounds pass has been endorsed by the NGO Branch of DESA ACUNS will send you a signed official letter and a copy of the security form. You will need to take a print copy of the official letter and the security form as well as valid Government-issued picture ID, such as a passport or driver’s license when you pick-up your pass.

  • The UN Pass and ID Office at HQ in New York is located at 320 East 45th Street (between First and Second Avenue).
    Office hours are 09.00–16.00 Monday to Friday inclusive.
  • The UN Pass and Identification office in Geneva is located at  Pregny Gate, Avenue de la Paix, entrance of the United Nations Office at Geneva.
    Office hours are 08.00–17.00 Monday to Friday inclusive.
