Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons – Meeting of States Parties

Information on Participation

The revised information note for States parties, observer States and intergovernmental organizations (TPNW/MSP/2022/INF/1/Rev.1) has been issued. Delegates are requested to review the information contained therein in detail. The attention of delegations is particularly drawn to revisions in sections II, III, V, VI and VIII and IX, as well as the new section VII.

All members of delegations to the Meeting of States Parties, irrespective of whether they are already in possession of a grounds pass to the United Nations Office in Vienna, are requested to register using the form available at no later than 14 June 2022. All delegates will receive a special conference pass, which will allow them entry to the Meeting of States Parties. Registrations can only be processed for members of delegations who are included either on their delegation’s list of participants or on the list of credentials (see sects. IV and V above).

Delegates will receive an email confirming their registration within 1–2 days of submitting the online form. They will subsequently receive a second email containing a link that will enable each participant to upload a photograph, which is needed to issue a pre-printed conference pass and which will therefore shorten the time needed to issue an access pass on the day of registration.

Identification passes will be issued at Gate One of the Vienna International Centre. Delegates who have uploaded their picture in advance will be able to collect their pass from the area marked “Pre-printed conference passes”. Delegates who have not uploaded their picture in advance will be able to collect their pass from the Pass Office. Both places are located to the right after the entrance to Gate One. Delegates will be able to collect their passes on 20 June from 1.00pm a.m. to 3.30 p.m. Passes can continue to be collected until the end of the Meeting of States Parties on 23 June. The Pass Office will be open from 8 a.m. to 3.30 p.m. from Monday to Friday. Participants will need their passport to collect their pass.
