All journalists are requested to inform the IAEA Press Office of their plans to attend. Journalists with permanent credentials to the VIC need no additional credentials. We encourage those journalists who do not yet have permanent accreditation, to request it at UNIS Vienna.

Information about arriving at the VIC:

It is currently not possible to disembark the U1 at Kaisermühlen/VIC due to construction work. Wiener Linien recommend continuing to Kagran station. There is an island platform that allows for an easy change of trains to take the train going in the opposite direction, go back two stations and thus reach the VIC.

Please be advised that FFP2 masks are generally recommended at the VIC (including in meeting rooms).
