All media representatives, both Chinese and international, wishing to attend the FIBA Basketball World Cup China 2019 must apply directly via the FIBA Media Portal.
The application period will open on 18 March 2019 and close on 17 May 2019.
CLICK HERE TO ACCESS THE FIBA MEDIA PORTAL
The FIBA Media Portal is available in English, Chinese, French and Spanish.
The submission of a media accreditation request will be possible after registration only. Should you already have an account, please use your email address and password to sign-in and select your event.
We remind you that only professional members of the media will be considered for accreditation and that only applications completed and submitted online within the media accreditation application deadlines will be taken into consideration.
Media accreditation decisions for Group Phase - Round 1 will be communicated by the end of May 2019.
Media credentials will be awarded on the basis of the professional history of the applying media, relevance to the event and basketball in general, as well as space availability in the venues.
FIBA will ultimately be responsible for the delivery of the accreditation decisions and distribution of badges for the event.
For further queries please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
DO YOU NEED A VISA FOR CHINA?
A visa is an official document that allows the bearer to legally enter a foreign country. To verify if you may need a visa for China, you can click HERE.
All members of the media that require a visa are responsible to apply themselves in their Chinese diplomatic mission/embassy in their respective country of residence.
VISA INVITATION LETTER
A visa invitation letter will be provided upon request only if requested via the FIBA Media Portal and only if all required mandatory information are provided and accurate.
Under no circumstances the invitation letter received will constitute a visa itself. The information provided will undergo police-screening and various reviews. If and when approved for the event, media representatives will receive an invitation letter from the Local Organizing Committee of the event in pdf via email. They will then be able to print it and join it to their application for a visa. This letter will facilitate the procedure when applying for a visa.
OFFICIAL MEDIA HOTELS
A list of Official Media Hotels is available below on this page. Additional services such as transportation to the venue, free of charge internet service and help desk and information will be provided in all Official Media Hotels.
An Official Media Hotel is available in each one of the 8 cities of the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019. Only accredited media will be able to book a room in these facilities.
Media employees will be able to pre-book their media accommodation in one or more of these hotels directly during their media accreditation application in the FIBA Media Portal, in the "Accommodation" tab.
One pre-reservation is possible for Group Phase - Round 1, while for Group Phase - Round 2, media representatives are able to select two options per person. For Quarter-Finals and Classification games, as well as for the Final Weekend in Beijing, only one pre-reservation is allowed.
The number of available rooms in each facility is different and limited, so reservations will be subject to availability.
If a media person has already requested a media accreditation for the event, they can simply log-in again and complete the "Accommodation" tab, then hit "Save".)
