Is there a way to obtain FIDE ID, also known as FID, without actually participating in FIDE rated events? I don't mean obtaining a FIDE rating, just the ID.
The reason why I am asking is simple: this summer I am going to Pardubice Czech Open and I would like to invite my father with me. I myself have a FIDE ID, but my father doesn't, and he lives in an area where FIDE rated events don't happen often so it is quite unlikely he can get FIDE id through playing in a tournament before Czech Open.
The issue is that according to the Czech Open rules foreign players must possess a FIDE ID to take part in their rated tournaments, so it might be so that my father won't be able to participate.
He has a national rating around 2150.
Is there a way to just get registered by FIDE and get an ID or something like that? Maybe through FIDE online arena? I have created an account for him on there and entered all the personal information, but it appears that to have his official online rating calculated we need to pay 25 euros fee. Not a big deal, but I am reluctant to do so without having some assurance that this will result into assigning FIDE ID for him.
