How do I create an account?
Please go to the online registration system to request account creation.
Accreditation is reserved for members of the press - print media, photo, radio, TV, film and news agencies represent bona fide media organisations [formally registered as a media organisation in a country recognized by the Ministry of Defence Malaysia] - who fully meet media accreditation requirements. Independent media (print media, photo, radio, TV, film and news agencies) and bloggers are invited to register as trade visitor pass.
How can I check the status of my accreditation?
Once your request has been approved, you will receive an e-mail with the confirmation link. You will receive an e-mail with your login name, password and further instructions. Please proceed and finish account creation procedure. The online system only recognizes valid e-mail addresses.
I'm a freelance journalist. Can I get accreditation?
Freelance journalists are subject to the same requirements for accreditation and must complete the full process. Freelance journalists, including photographers, must provide clear evidence they are on assignment from a specific news organization or publication. A valid assignment letter from that news organization, or publication, is required. Photographic agencies must provide clear evidence from a client news organization or publication. You must also submit the other required documents for accreditation.
I'm a blogger. Can I get accreditation?
Bloggers may be granted accreditation if blog content is deemed relevant to the industry, contains news commentary, is regularly updated and made publicly available. Corporate bloggers are invited to register as trade visitor pass.
What happens if I have to replace someone already accredited from my organization?
We are aware that assignments can change at short notice. Please communicate changes in staff as soon as they are known. The applicant will have to complete the same process, but as long as they have the required valid materials, there is usually little delay in processing.
