The penalty fees for late registration will not be applied in those countries where a Reverse Delegate has been appointed. The organizers have elaborated a special on-line system for the participants of the Olympiad and the Congress. The link to the registration system and detailed explanations will be available on the official website of the Olympiad

The accompanying persons of the teams may be registered by the Federations or the appointed FIDE Reverse Delegates only.

Registration of the Congress Participants

Registration of the Congress participants (Delegates, Council Members, FIDE Manage- ment, Commission Members) is the same as for the teams. The Congress participants may register from 28th April to 27th May 2022 through the official registration system of the Olympiad. As for the Delegates, late registration is eligible if the Delegate has been changed according to the Article 3.6 of the Electoral Rules.
The questions regarding the registration to the Congress should be addressed to Mr. Sandeep Singh at: [email protected] and to FIDE Office at: [email protected].

Important Remarks

No participants, accompanying persons, delegates will be accepted to the Olympiad without having passed the registration through the official system. No accreditation will be given to them as well.
Please note that the Organizers won’t accept any registrations after 27th June 2022 for visas and security reasons. The exception is applied to the late registration of the Congress Delegates when eligible.
The Federations will receive their Accreditation Confirmation, as well as the name of the Hotel allocated to them and their accompanying persons after they have registered to the Olympiad and the FIDE Congress.

Accreditation

All participants to the Olympiad and the FIDE Congress must be accredited and wear their accreditations when in the venues (Olympiad and the Congress). The federations must send to the organizers an identity picture of each participant that can be used for accreditation via the registration system. Please note that without an identity picture, the accreditation is not valid.
If there is any problem with accreditation during the Olympiad, the participants should go to the accreditation center at the Venue. The Congress participants should address the Congress Accreditation Center located in the Hotel Leela Palace Chennai.
