Frequently Asked Questions

You’ll receive your complete Comic-Con 2022 badge in a plain, nondescript package for safety. A Comic-Con 2022 badge is made up of two pieces only: the plastic badge holder with an RFID sticker attached and your daily or 4-Day paper name badge(s).

Your badge will come preassembled with the paper name badge(s) inserted into the plastic badge holder. If you have multiple single-day badges, you must always display the current day’s badge in front. You will only have one RFID sticker for all associated paper badges.

Shipping badges in advance is so convenient! It allows you to skip badge pick-up lines when you arrive and proceed directly to the fun stuff. Look for signage that says "Bags, Books, and Lanyards" for directions on where to pick up your Comic-Con publications, lanyard, and souvenir bag.

To put it simply, they aren't. DO NOT purchase a Comic-Con badge or RFID sticker from a third-party/scalper. Comic-Con badges are non-transferable and can only be purchased directly from an official Comic-Con source such as our Configio badge sale. All other badges sold on websites or through event/travel planning companies are not authorized by Comic-Con and are often counterfeit. Any badges/RFID stickers purchased elsewhere may have been deactivated or otherwise not be valid, and you will not know until your badge is scanned once you arrive.

Scalped badges and RFID stickers are subject to cancellation.

All badges for Comic-Con 2022 have been sold. As was done in 2019, canceled and returned Comic-Con 2022 badges may be made available to the general public through a badge auction to help raise funds for the Comic-Con Museum at a later date. Keep an eye on our website for details.
