Dear Civil Society Colleagues,

Please note that the Civil Society Resource Centre is closed for visitors, and the Civil Society Unit continues to work remotely. Updates on the processing applications for UN Grounds Passes for the representatives of the DGC associated civil society organizations will follow shortly.

Thank you for your understanding,

Security and Safety Broadcast

In accordance with the ongoing organizational directives to dramatically limit the number of staff members operating on UNHQ premises, and in an effort to lessen the direct contacts of those essential groups who must operate from the campus, the Security and Safety Service has been closely monitoring usage levels, and has noted the dramatic reduction of both the number of persons present, and the usage of admission points. As a result, the following operational adjustments have been implemented:

Pass and ID Office: Until further notice the operating hours of the Pass and ID Office will be 9AM to 12MD on weekdays.

The Pass Office will accept scanned PDF grounds pass applications from applicants who present themselves at the Pass Office. All relevant fields of the grounds pass application must be completed and signed by the Authorized Signatory. It can be digitally or manually signed.

Pedestrian Access 7AM to 6PM weekdays: Pedestrian access to the premises for all category of pass holders will be via the 42nd Street Staff Entrance. At all other times pedestrian access will be via the 43rd Street Main Gate. 

Special Notice: All pass holders are reminded of the requirement to swipe in and out at the point of access to the premises and at the turnstiles.
