UN Passes and Accreditations

THIS PAGE IS STILL UNDER DEVELOPMENT. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE AS ACUNS CREATES A NEW GROUNDS PASSES AND ACCREDITATION FORM.

ACUNS holds consultative status with the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) as well as partnerships with UNEP and UNESCO. Given these affiliations, it is able to request a temporary UN grounds pass for ACUNS members as well as accreditations to members who are interested in attending UN events, conferences, or other programs.

Members who are interested in applying for a grounds pass or would like to obtain accreditation to attend a UN event as an ACUNS representative must complete the ACUNS UN Passes and Accreditations Application Form (LINK TO FORM). Please complete this form at least two weeks before your temporary pass or accreditation is needed.

Only ACUNS members are eligible to obtain a temporary grounds pass or an accreditation to attend an event as an ACUNS representative. Individuals can sign up for membership on the dedicated form.

Please note that ACUNS cannot guarantee receiving a grounds pass or an accreditation. Available passes are limited in number and requests may be denied by the UN and its organs.

For any questions about grounds passes or accreditations, please email the ACUNS Administrative Coordinator, Mr. Filip Savatic, at admin@acuns.org.

Grounds Passes

In order to obtain a grounds pass, you must first complete the ACUNS UN Passes and Accreditations Application Form (LINK TO FORM). Once your grounds pass has been endorsed, ACUNS will send you a signed official letter and a copy of the security form. You will need to bring a printed copy of the official letter and the security form as well as a valid government-issued picture ID, such as a passport or driver’s license, when you pick-up your pass.
