The session will take place at the Palais Wilson, First Floor Conference Room.

All observers wishing to attend the above session must be duly registered.  

Representatives of non-governmental organizations wishing to attend the session should register online and follow the instructions for registration and for obtaining a ground pass:   Click here.   

All other observers should fill-out the Conference Registration Form in full (http://goo.gl/261iF) and send it by e-mail to the Secretary of CMW at cmw@ohchr.org. This form must include the full title of the national human rights institution, university or other affiliate (under "Delegation/Participant of Country, Organisation or Agency"), the name of the country issuing the respective passport or identity document along with the number and date of validity; the office phone number and address of the institution, university or other affiliate as the case may be, as well as the e-mail address; the home phone number, address and e-mail in the case of a private individual; as well as the address where the applicant will be staying in Geneva. 

To receive the ground pass, all applicants are required to bring the signed original of the Conference Registration Form, a valid national passport or government issued photo ID, and appear in person at the Palais des Nations, Security Entrance, Pregny Gate, 8 - 14 Avenue de la Paix, 1211 Geneva 10, Switzerland.  The office hours are 8:00 to 17:00, Monday through Friday.

Please note that applicants must bring their passports (or government issued photo ID) every time they wish to enter UN premises.

All requests for registration should reach OHCHR two weeks in advance of the session at the latest, i.e., by 1 April 2013.

Applicants who submit forms that are illegible, incomplete or received after the deadline may not be registered. Please note that OHCHR will not provide letters of invitation for the purpose of obtaining visas to observers wishing to attend CMW sessions. In addition, OHCHR is unable to assist with travel and/or accommodation costs relating thereto.

The Committee accepts written submissions by non-governmental organizations, national human rights institutions and other stakeholders on the implementation of the Convention by States parties. Organizations that wish to submit information to the Committee may do so by e-mail to the Secretary of the Committee at cmw@ohchr.org in Word format, indicating whether or not the information may be published on the CMW website and, if possible, also in hard copy to the address indicated below.

Written submissions should address as briefly and precisely as possible the main human rights issues arising under the articles of the Convention affecting migrant workers and members of their families in the State party concerned, as well as migrant workers and members of their families from that State party who live abroad. Written submissions should be prepared with a view to assisting the Committee in formulating targeted conclusions and recommendations, as well as lists of issues, and in the case of lists of issues prior to reporting, in identifying the central issues to be addressed in the State party’s subsequent periodic report. Written submissions by external parties are not to be published as official UN documents and, therefore, will not be translated by the UN Secretariat.

Representatives of non-governmental organizations and other stakeholders may also provide information orally on the States parties under consideration directly to the Committee in public meeting and/or at informal meetings scheduled for this purpose.

Organizations wishing to provide oral briefings should contact the Secretary of CMW. Participants making oral interventions in public meeting should bring with them 20 copies of their statements for distribution to the Committee experts and interpreters.
