Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) & Ticket Refunds

Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19):

We regret to inform you that in line with official recommendations as a measure amidst the current coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, the United Nations headquarters is closed to the public and guided tours are temporarily suspended. Click here for information by the World Health Organization on COVID-19 and regular updates. Alternatively, please visit for up-to-date and factual information on the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ticket Refunds:

Due to the growing COVID-19 emergency and the recommendation to minimize operation and staffing, processing refunds is taking longer than under normal circumstances. Existing reservations will be fully refunded and an email confirmation will be sent to you once the refund is complete.

Please continue to follow us at, on Facebook and Twitter to receive regular updates on the closure of the Headquarters. We apologize for any inconvenience caused and we appreciate your understanding and patience. Stay safe and healthy and we look forward to welcoming you again to United Nations headquarters in the future!
