Accessing Parliament / Accreditation

Following EP President Sassoli’s latest decision of 1st June, upon advice of Parliament’s medical service, everyone wishing to enter Parliament’s premises must wear a medical-type face mask. Entering Parliament wearing so-called ‘community masks’ or other masks made of textiles will not be allowed. Social distancing and hand hygiene must also be respected whilst on Parliament’s premises.

Press passes can be collected at the press entrance desk.

Journalists with an inter-institutional badge can request a “Key card” at the press entrance. This electronic pass activates automatic doors and will facilitate circulation on the premises, both in Strasbourg and Brussels.

Due to ongoing renovation work in Parliament’s buildings, the media accreditation office will be closed. The filming permits are available at the Press room desk. (tbc)

Parliament’s press work room and press conference room will be open and accessible, on the same basis as Brussels, with a space to be left vacant between each desk..

Press conferences will continue to be run on a hybrid basis, with remote participation possible via interactio.

 

Audiovisual facilities

The audiovisual area next to the chamber is currently under renovation. TV studio and stand ups will temporarily take place in the “Voxbox area” to the left of the hemicycle.

The audiovisual planning desk remains available, but in the Voxbox area.

Due to this renovation work, please note that our offer will be limited: ENG crews, editing facilities, stand up positions and studios are still available but with reduced capacity.
