Changes to Regulations of transferring to FIDE flag for Refugees

Days ago, FIDE has introduced changes in the regulation of transfers to the FIDE flag by refugees, asylum seeking or stateless chess players, seeking to make it easier to play chess and compete in events for those people who find themselves in this situation.

These changes came into effect on past May 1st and are intended for those players who are refugees but cannot obtain a FIDE ID in the country where they reside.

You can see the complete note on FIDE website in this link.
