We issue a specially-designed international press card to our overseas members.
The card incorporates important security features such as holographic foil blocking, signature strip and laminated card holder photo and details, which gives better and improved protection not only to journalists but also to those checking the credentials of reporters in emergencies. These measures not only make the card more secure, but also make it more difficult to forge. Anyone scrutinising the card for authenticity will immediately be able to notice signs of tampering.
In a further unique feature, the new Institute card comes with multi-language inserts that can be changed to cater for different destinations.
Details of the card have been forwarded to embassies and major international organisations who request press credentials before allowing reporters or media people access to events or press briefings.
