This media advisory marks the opening of online registration for accreditation.
Taking into account COVID-19 safety measures and the current sanitary situation, a limited number of media representatives will be allowed to cover the event in person.
Media representatives who wish to cover the event need to seek accreditation, even if they have annual accreditation at NATO (detailed procedure outlined below).
The press conferences of the NATO Secretary General will be also open for online participation. Registration will be required.
NATO will also facilitate remote coverage/interaction:
NATO is offering journalists the option to ask questions remotely via Zoom to the NATO Secretary General during his press conferences. Journalists wishing to do so are requested to register by no later than Wednesday 24 November 2021 at 23:59 (Brussels Time) via NATO’s accreditation platform: my.hq.nato.int.

Media representatives registered for remote engagement will be contacted separately for technical details. While every effort will be made to accommodate as many questions as possible, time limitations might not allow all questions to be asked.
