hello respected members, i just want to know the procedure of getting FIDE rating, well there is an International open tournament coming up in my home town this month so if i participate there will i get FIDE rating?
Become a club player, get an athlete's ID in your federation, and you will also be registered in FIDE's list. Then play in rated tournaments to get an official FIDE rating.
First you need to apply for a FIDE ID through your federation before you play your games against FIDE rated players.
Not anymore. http://arena.myfide.net/
That will get you a FIN and you can get an online FIDE rating. Of course, OTB play would still be necessary to get regular rating.
