Traveling to the Accreditation Centre
If your accreditation request was approved, you can pick up your Accreditation Card at the Accreditation Centre, located next to Hovet, which is next to the Globe Arena.
- Traveling by taxi? The address to the Accreditation Centre is Arenavägen 29.
- Traveling by underground? Take the underground from Stockholm's Central Station, choose the green line for Hagsätra and get off at Globen. The underground trip will take you approximately 15 minutes and the ticket costs 36 SEK (approx. €3.70). Please follow the signs from the underground station to the Accreditation Centre.
For accredited press (P) and fans (F) the Accreditation Centre will be open from Sunday 1st May until Saturday 14th May from 9:00 in the morning until 19:00 every day.
To pick up your Accreditation Card
To receive your Accreditation Card at the Accreditation Centre, you have to show a valid ID card with photo or passport. You may collect your accreditation card from Sunday 1st May 2016, however the Press Centre will not open until Monday 2nd May 2016.
By accepting the Accreditation Card, you, irrespective of the category under which you are accredited, irrevocably accept that the provisions of the present Code of Conduct shall apply to you and agree to abide by and be bound by the present Code of Conduct. The Code of Conduct can be found in the Accreditation Handbook, which you can download here (PDF). The guide also gives more clarity about access rights.
Lost your card?
Please report a lost card at the Accreditation Centre immediately. A lost card can be replaced at the cost of €80.
Be advised that unlike in previous years your Accreditation Card alone does NOT give you access to free public transport, only to the official Eurovision Song Contest shuttle service. To use Stockholm's convenient public transport system, you can pick up a free SL Card, which is loaded with credit, at the Information & Service Desk in the Press Centre.
The application for delegates, press and fan accreditation took place online, through the Eurovision Family Accreditation System (EFAS). The deadline to apply for accreditation was 8 April 2016, 23:59 CEST.
The last incoming accreditation applications have been reviewed on 15 April 2016, 23:59 CEST. Applications have been reviewed by the delegation you applied in, or by the EBU if you come from a non-participating country (including Romania).
Late accreditation applications will, in principle, be rejected. Under extraordinary circumstances, at the sole discretion of the EBU, late accreditations may be granted. To apply for late accreditation, please contact the Head of Press of your national delegation or, if you come from a non-participating country, the Eurovision Song Contest press office.
