Security requirements

During the 137th Inter-Parliamentary Union Assembly, the host party will take the necessary steps to ensure the security and safety of the Speakers of Parliaments of the participating countries, as well as that of MPs and invited guests from the time of their arrival until their departure from St Petersburg.

In accordance with the strict security requirements in effect during the 137th Inter-Parliamentary Union Assembly, access to the business and cultural programme event venues will be by accreditation badge only.

The badges are personal and non-transferable. Please carry the badge and your passport (or other ID) at all times during the Assembly to show to Security personnel in order to gain entry to the business and cultural programme event venues. The badges are colour-coded to facilitate security procedures.

If your badge is lost, stolen or damaged, please report this immediately to the staff at an information and registration desk or to the Assembly Information Centre at: +7 (812) 406 7470.

Owing to enhanced security procedures, we recommend arriving at the venues early, 30 to 40 minutes ahead of the start of the event.
