Aside from many other services, the press card is included in the cost. In other words: no surcharge or additional costs will be incurred. Contrary to other organisations, the doors at GNS Press are open to freelance or part-time journalists. Especially part-time journalists often feel underrepresented in the associations that mainly represent full-time journalists. Coupled with a poor order situation, many journalists simply can no longer afford to pay the high dues. In contrast, GNS provides the permanent services for a flat service fee of 33 Euro a year.
The procedure: after the registration, you will receive a temporary confirmation, allowing you to make your payment. Please wait for the confirmation because it contains important payment information (order number and customer ID). Upon receipt of your payment, you will receive the press documents within 10 days by registered mail with signature required.

You don’t need to do anything:
Every year in October, you will receive a letter that allows you to request the press card for the next year. The press card will be re-issued every year. No additional costs will be incurred because the new issue is already included in the annual service fee (no surcharge or hidden extra costs). Note to the termination: possible any time to the end of the year (e-mail or fax is sufficient). For your own safety, no bank details will be archived; therefore, no direct debit authorisation is required.
