    Hello,

     I am from USA living in Asia.  I've never competed before.  How can I apply for a FIDE ID to compete? Thanks.

    You need to play in FIDE-rated events.

    Try to find a chess club or phone your national chess federation to know where these events take place.

    When you play enough games (~9), you'll get a FIDE rating and ID.

    I am not located in the US.  I've phone a local chess club, and they said to contact the US chess federation about getting one.  I told told by others here that it would be free, but the US chess federation appears to be a paid thing.

    If you're living in another country, get in touch with the federation or club of your local place of residence.

    FIDE is international : you don't need to play in US tournaments to get a FIDE rating.

    Get in touch with http://www.aicf.in/ and look for FIDE-rated events in your country. When you compete in a couple of them, you'll get a FIDE rating.

    Right now I'm playing a 9-round tournament, which counts for FIDE. However, I don't have FIDE profil or whatever it is. Is there a membership or something? Or will I get it anyway?

    If I'm not wrong, actually you need to play 9 games in official events against 9 FIDE-rated players.

    And you'll get the rating corresponding to the time format you are playing.

    Duh... Not all players are FIDE rated there. :/

    Edit: Thanks mate, hopefully it'll work there, too. Smile

    I got a FIDE standard rating after 2 FIDE rated tournaments with 2-3 games against FIDE rated players in one and a couple in the other. I never applied or anything, if the tournament is FIDE rated and you have a national ID it should work automatically.

    It's automatic and you only need 5 games now (provided you score at least half a point).

    Yay, still chance if I get 4 more rated players in the next 6 rounds! :D

    Just join the USCF. You will then need to request for them to submit a request to FIDE to get an ID there.

    That can be done through the contact form: https://www.uschess.org/component/option,com_wrapper/Itemid,327/

    Just select FIDE issue and fill out the rest of the form with the pertinent details.
