Please be advised that the UN has implemented a new Security System. This change requires ALL COUNTRY PARTICIPANTS (even those who have been at the UN Headquarters before) to have your photographs taken to acquire your Grounds Pass.
You must present the request document issued by your Permanent Mission and your passport to the Pass and ID Unit, located in the corner of 45th Street and 1st Avenue.
Regular Pass and ID Unit opening hours: Monday-Friday 9:00 am to 4:00 pm
Special hours of operation:
Friday 23 February: 8:00 am to 4:00 pm (one hour earlier)
Sunday 25 February: 10:00 am to 5:00 pm
You are strongly advised to get the Pass as early as possible, preferably on Thursday, 22 February. Please communicate with your Permanent Mission so that the request document is ready upon your arrival in New York, containing the actual dates you will attend Statistical Commission-related events. We foresee very heavy traffic at the Pass and ID Unit, due to the Commission on the Status of Women, which will start at the same week.
Please note that the Friday 23 February Seminar on Evolution of National Statistical Systems is now scheduled to start at 9:30 am.
We look forward to welcoming you to the 38th Session of the Statistical Commission.
