    Hi Mark,
    Can I clarify that Australian players can register as long as they are happy to fund themselves?
    Travel arrangements need to be made by now, so if you can clarify this, it will be much appreciated.
    Thank you.

    This is a completely open event. Any junior can play as long as they are registered with an Oceania federeation such as Australia and are hapy to fund themselves.

    A reminder that all player entries whether official or additional must be submitted by their respective national chess Federation.
    Only exception are players from NZL.

    For example, if the player is AUS, their entries are submitted on the one entry form by the official appointed by ACF.

    Entry procedures effectively gives every Oceania federation the power to decide which of their players they allow the opportunity to compete.
    The myriad regulatory clauses are detailed in the event's PDF.

    Every federation should have already set their own internal procedures to meet payment deadlines stipulated.
    Generally the price increases if deadline is missed!!

    Also note that accompanying persons need to be registered as well. Only people who are registered would be issued ID badges that allow them entry into the playing venue.
    We have facilities to register and issue badges (after payment of fees) on site for every accompanying person who forgot.

    Hi Mark,
    When can we expect to see confirmation of the registraotin list.
    As the registration can only be done via ACF, it is important to note if our registration has been placed successfully to ACF.

    Thank you.

    As far as I know a confirmation email was sent out couple days ago from ACF to those who expressed interest to play in this tournament. If you didn't register your interest earlier or didn't receive email I'd suggest to contact ACF
