Journalists seeking to cover major national functions requiring accreditation are encouraged to apply. The accreditation fee is one hundred United States Dollars (USD$100.00) per individual.

All fees must be paid to the Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA), with billing processed through the Finance Office of the Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism, and deposited into the LRA account.
