The deadline to apply is 28 February 2019, and no further application will be accepted after that date.
“Today we have opened an accreditation system not only for the media, but also for all other client groups of the Games - NOCs, European sports federations, contractors and many others,” said Anton Lyakhov, MEGOC Head of Accreditation. - On the one hand, this is the beginning of a new organizational stage, on the other hand, the final of a long and tedious work with our IT-partner, Synesis Sport, a completely new, based on advanced sports experience and modern computer technologies, electronic accreditation system. We did our best to make the accreditation system as convenient as possible for all its users.”
Accredited persons will receive a European Games Identity and Accreditation Card (EGIAC), commonly referred to as accreditation, which will:
- Establish the identity of the holder;
- Permit access to the 2nd European Games Minsk 2019;
- Authorize visa-free entrance into Belarus to participate in the Minsk 2019 European Games (when used with a valid ID document that was used at MINSK2019 Online Accreditation Platform).
