I have been playing online chess for a long time on sites like lichess and chess.com. But I have never played in any FIDE or AICF organized tournament. In this pandemic are there any online tournaments for new players organized by FIDE or AICF?

There are online tournaments organized by FIDE (https://new.arena.myfide.net). They are more or less like lichess tournaments and you get a special online FIDE rating and you can receive special online titles (https://www.notion.so/FIDE-Online-Arena-Titles-045a5cbfb0994e0b9c04e05ee44c0491). To my best knowledge, there are no tournaments in which you can receive real FIDE points. I think because cheating is always a problem in online games.
