National federations unable to fulfill payment obligations through bank transfer must request authorization from both the Organizing Committee and the FIDE Events Commission before the deadline (30 September 2024).

Such requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, taking into consideration the circumstances and reasons provided by the concerned federation.

Approval for alternative payment methods will be granted only under exceptional circumstances and at the discretion of the Organizing Committee and the FIDE Events Commission.

Federations must provide compelling reasons for their inability to make payments via bank transfer, along with a feasible alternative proposal for fulfilling their financial obligations.

National Federations are responsible in paying the Organizing Committee the fees as communicated.

Any bank charges or for transferring the amounts will be charged to the National Federations prior to the event or directly with the Head of Delegation on site.

Entries must be submitted through the registration forms by Monday 30 September 2024.

Late registration after the registration deadline – the Registration fee will double. The Organizer is not required to accept registrations made after the deadline. After the late registration no invited/personal right players shall be accepted with FB accommodation. The mentioned participants will be considered as additional players.

Entry Fees for late registration, withdrawal, or no-show shall be charged as follows as per FIDE Regulations .

If any FIDE federation is expected to miss the registration deadline for reasons/circumstances beyond their control, they shall approach EVE before the registration deadline.
EVE shall investigate the case, and attempt to work with the organizer to find a solution.

Entry Fees for late registration, withdrawal or no show shall be charged as follow as per FIDE Regulations .

Withdrawal after submission of registration:
• (30 to 60 days before the start of the competition) – 75% refund of the person’s total fees paid to the organizer.
• (15 to 30 days before the start of the competition) – 50% refund of the person’s total fees paid to the organizer.
• (1 to 15 days before the start of the competition) – 25% refund of the person’s total fees paid to the organizer.

Withdrawal after the pairings for Round 1 are published – no refund.

If a person withdraws under the provisions of Articles 3.9.2 – 3.9.4 FIDE Regulations, and the Federation is able to replace the person to take their room allocation, then the replacement will need to pay the registration fee (see Article 3.8 FIDE Regulations), and it will not be treated as withdrawal.

FIDE is entitled to coordinate the refund process in case of extraordinary situations (pandemics, wars, natural disasters and similar significant reasons), when it concerns large number of registered people – at least 1/10 or minimum 50 registered participants, including accompanying people or affects one national federation that cannot participate for reasons that FIDE will confirm as valid.
In this case, FIDE approves the final refund amount for all such players, and this amount is mandatory for the organizer.

The organizer has the right to submit its arguments on this issue to FIDE before making a final decision.
