FIE Licence Applications
Three conditions need to be met before you will be able to request a FIE licence.
1) That you have no debt outstanding for more than 30 days.
2) That you have provided a scan of your passport to the AFF (via the Portal, and its been verified)
3) That you have provided a 'Heads and Sholder' photo to act as your Official Photo for International event passes, and on the FIE Website. (via the Portal, and its been verified)
Once these conditions are met:
The licence can then be requested in the portal - 'My Details' -> 'FIE Licence'.
Payment of $60 is required to be made before the licence can be issued. Payment can be made as outlined on this web site under Documents and Policies / All Documents and Policies / Address and Bank Details (or click here). Payment should not be made until the licence has been requested.
Anyone wishing to confirm that their FIE licence is current can do so by going to the FIE website and following the links, or clicking on http://www.fie.ch/Licenses/LicSearch.aspx and selecting Australia from the pull-down menu.
Notionally, the FIE licences used to expire after the Senior World Championships, which were traditionally the last event of the calendar. However, now there are sometimes Satellite events after the Senior World Champs, and in the Olympic years the date of that event is not defined by the FIE, so the situation is not quite as clear. Furthermore, World Veterans Championships now take place after the World Open Championships.
All FIE events listed on the Official FIE Calendar for a specified season require an FIE licence for THAT season. The 2012/2013 Season has events starting on 1 October 2012 (Asian Cadet Championships, Bali), and ending 1 October 2013 (World Veteran Championships).
Events requiring an FIE licence which do not appear on the FIE calendar can be assumed to require an FIE licence that is current as at the date of the event (e.g. December 2012 will require a 2012/2013 FIE licence). Generally, where a non-FIE event occurs near the close of the FIE year (e.g. 30 September), the organisers will accept an FIE licence for either of both years covering that period.
