Dear Media Colleagues,



Hello, this is Media Accreditation Team (TEAM MediAD) of IAGOC.


We inform you that the OCA final approval (after each NOC’s confirmation) for media accreditation for the Incheon Asian Games have been completed for those who applied from the 1st period (Jan 20 to May 20) to the 2nd period (June 10 to June 20). All you need to do now is log on to MY STATUS on Media Accreditation System to check whether your application is accredited.


Only those applications that show MY STATUS as either “Approved” or “Under Visa screening process” are subject to the OCA approval.



■ Approved - AD sent to NOC

This applies to those who have passed NOC’s confirmation, Visa Screening by the Ministry of Justice and the OCA approval. Those under this category will have their AD cards sent to NOCs. After AD cards are sent, MY STATUS will turn into “NOC received AD.”



■ Under Visa screening process

This category refers to those who have passed both NOC’s confirmation and OCA approval but are still waiting for the Visa Screening by the Ministry of Justice. For those under this category, AD cards will be sent to NOCs right away as long as there is nothing wrong with the Visa Screening process. After AD cards are sent, MY STATUS will turn into “NOC received AD.”


But for Korean media organizations, non-OCA media organizations and those with IF (International Federation) or AF (Asian Federation), the IAGOC will not send out AD cards. They have to receive their AD cards at the on-site accreditation centers. Please be mindful of this.


For more details about on-site accreditation centers, you can refer to ‘Confirmation of Media Accreditation’ and you can print out the Confirmation on MY STATUS.


And the rest whose MY STATUS is “Confirmation by IAGOC suspended” is the ones who have been given the OCA’s conditional approval as their submitted information is not correct. If you fall under this group, you can receive an AD card at one of the on-site accreditation centers after correcting the wrong information by 18:00 on Aug 22 (in Korean Time).


We truly appreciate your cooperation and look forward to seeing you in Incheon.

If you have any further questions or inquires please feel free to contact us refering to the contact info below (Please mind that we, TEAM MediAD, do not deal with any inquiries regarding the accommodation).


Sincerely yours,


Media Accreditation Team of Media Support Department

17th Incheon Asian Games Organizing Committee
