The UPR Working Group will hold its 46th session from 29 April to 10 May 2024 in Room XX, Palais des Nations, United Nations Office at Geneva, Switzerland.

Accreditation and issuance of badges for all delegates wishing to attend the session 

Requests for accreditation should be made online through the platform below to the Secretariat of the Universal Periodic Review as from 13 March 2024. Please allow three working days for your request to be processed.

Online request for accreditation: 

Representatives who possess a UNOG or UNHQ badge giving them access to the conference room will have unrestricted access to the respective room. However, they are also requested to register in the online system.

Representatives who do not hold an identification badge issued by the Security and Safety Section of the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG) or United Nations Headquarters in New York (UNHQ) should apply through the online platform

Once accreditation has been granted, a digital badge similar to a mobile boarding pass for a plane or a train is emailed to participants. The digital badge consists of a QR code and the photo uploaded on the online platform, as well as information related to the conference, meeting or event. Those who do not have a phone can simply print their badge and bring it to access the Palais des Nations.
