About the ITER Visits
What will my visit include?
An ITER site visit generally includes: a stop at the belvedere of the Visitor Centre with its panoramic view of the construction platform, a presentation on the ITER Project, a drive on the ITER platform (subject to platform access conditions on the day of your visit).
Is there a dress code?
Yes, for safety reasons, no skirts, shorts or high heels are permitted to be worn on the ITER worksite.
What are visit requirements?
All visitors must have a reservation along with a passport (or, for residents of the Schengen area, a government-issued ID). Driver's licenses and professional badges are not accepted.
Does a group need to make a bus reservation?
Yes. Visitor groups need to make arrangements for a bus to take them onto the ITER worksite. You may contact any transport company to hire a bus for your visit, as for example the local transport company SUMIAN (+33 4 42 54 72 82). Please note that you need to share the bus driver's personal details (i.e. name, date of birth, place of birth, nationality) with the ITER visit team in advance.
Can kids visit the ITER construction site?
Visitors must be 16 years of age and minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Kids younger than 16 are not permitted on the ITER worksite. We make an exception on Open Doors Days when we allow children aged ten and above to visit the ITER worksite.
