Covid-19 and Entry into Romania

Regarding the sanitary situation and entry into Romania, the most up-to-date information can be found on the Host Country website here as well as on the Covid-19 free ITU event page.

Entry into the Conference venue

Access to the official PP-22 Conference venue, the International Conference Center of the Parliament of Romania (ICC-PR), in Bucharest, will be strictly limited to persons wearing a Conference event badge with photograph.

Participants are advised that all delegates, observers, media representatives, ITU and Host Country secretariat staff, and all technical and support staff of the ICC-PR, will only be admitted to the Conference venue upon presentation of this badge. Participants need to also carry a National ID or official travel document with photo, in case the venue security requests to see a secondary piece of ID.

All participants will be security screened at dedicated access points to the ICC-PR Conference venue, similar to security controls found at airports. All participants will also have their conference event badge scanned at the security reader systems when entering/exiting the ICC-PR venue.

It is recommended that participants coming to the ICC-PR venue limit their hand luggage to one [1] small briefcase. Anything larger than cabin luggage will not be permitted inside the ICC-PR venue.

While in the Conference venue

Participants are reminded to safeguard their personal belongings at all times while in the ICC-PR venue as well as in their official hotels.

All security incidents and lost and found inquiries during the event, can be addressed to the PP-22 Conference Event Safety & Security Team, at the Event Security Office, located in the lobby area next to the C1 access point of the ICC-PR venue.
