Members of the media who intend to cover this event from the venues are advised to submit their applications for non-rights holders’ accreditation by 17h00 Dubai time on Saturday, 29 April 2023.

Media persons whose accreditation applications are approved, will be provided with visa letters, should they require them. Please contact Darlington Majonga (details below) for the visa letters as well as any other matter regarding the media accreditation process and collection of accreditation cards.

The ICC reserves the right to approve/reject/request further information on all applications in its sole discretion and without providing reasons for doing so.

The media will have to adhere to all the media terms and conditions and bio-security protocols in place for the event or will risk getting their accreditation cards revoked.

As of now, there are no quarantine requirements in Zimbabwe. However, the media is responsible for checking on any developments and will be required to adhere to any government guidelines and bear costs related to any tests, procedures or quarantine should they be required.

By sending the information requested above, it will be understood that the applicant has agreed to and accepted the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Qualifier 2023 Media Accreditation Terms and Conditions which are available HERE.
