Obtaining An FIE Licence

Updated 11/02/2009

Those eligible to compete in FIE events (Satellite events, Grand Prix and World Cup (A grade),  World Championships, and FIE Team events) and events recognised  by the FIE such as Commonwealth Fencing Championships  require a current FIE license.

Benefits:
The issue of the license permits fencers to be entered in to the FIE category of competition and holders will also receive the FIE quarterly magazine “Escrime”.

Validity:
The FIE license period of validity runs from immediately after the end of the last Senior World Championships to the end of the next Senior World Championships.

Note: FIE age category eligibility is based upon date of birth on the 1st January for the forth coming world championship age category event. Fencers who are not eligible to compete in the next years world championship age category championship, are not eligible to fence in FIE the new season age category events immediately after the last world championship age category event they were eligible for. Even if they are within the age category at the time of the event.

Eligibility:
Only New Zealand Citizens who are members of FeNZ can apply for a FIE license from Fencing New Zealand. Other fencers should apply to the national federation for the country that they are a citizen of.

Applicants for an FIE license must also have a FeNZ membership for the full period covered by the FIE license

Fees:
FIE license for eligible NZ resident FeNZ members $70.
FIE license eligible overseas resident fencers $100 (includes FeNZ membership/admin fee)

Time required:
FeNZ advises applicants to allow at least (preferably more than) four weeks to process FIE license and entry to FIE events. FIE events have a two week closing date for entries and there are no late entries accepted.

License application process:
Supply FeNZ required personal information and the required fees. The license application will be processed electronically by FeNZ. An electronic confirmation of purchase will be emailed to applicants who supply an email address. The license card can take approximately 3 weeks to be received by FeNZ which will then be posted to applicant at the given address.

Event Entry:
Entries can only be made by a fencers' National Federation, on-line direct to the FIE. Because of the closeing date two weeks before the event only current holders of an FIE license can be entered through the FIE on-line entry process. For this reason please allow at least an aditional 14 days notice to FeNZ for correct processing of entry (please allow FeNZ at least one calendar month before event to fully process entry).
