Media accreditation

Journalists and photographers are required to apply for and be granted media accreditation to the Riksdag to be able to work independently in the Riksdag. Media accreditation can be granted to individuals who undertake tasks of a primarily journalistic nature on behalf of media companies, as an employee or freelance. Primarily means that, all together, the tasks correspond to at least 50 per cent of full-time during the period for which the application applies.

Media accreditation to the Riksdag gives access to Riksdag premises on weekdays during regular working hours (8.00–16.30) and during other times in connection with meetings of the Chamber or the committees, parties or press conferences.
