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.
How to join FIDE?
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.
After how much time will i get my FIDE id if i had paid already
