Attending the summit

Media accreditation

Information on the accreditation process will be issued in due course but we anticipate opening the media accreditation website in early 2018.

It will be the responsibility of journalists to make their own accommodation, transport and visa (if applicable) arrangements. We recommend that you organise these in good time and once you know that you have been successfully accredited to the summit.

Visa information

If you require a visa to attend CHOGM 2018 you are advised to apply through your usual application route. Your application can be submitted up to three months before and no later than 15 working days before you intend to travel. This will enable UK Visas & Immigration to consider your application in good time.
