If you are registering for a fee which is lower than your country of residence, there is an additional piece of documentation that you must upload along with your passport. You will be asked to provide proof of current residence, employment or education in the country associated with the fee for which you are registering.

Example: You are a High-Income Economy passport-holder working in an Upper-Middle-Income Economy and registering for the Upper-Middle-Income Economy fee. You will provide 1) a copy of your High-Income Economy passport as well as 2) proof of current residence, current employment or current education in the Upper-Middle-Income Economy.

This request also applies to universities and hospitals who are registering delegates from economies belonging to income categories lower than that of the hospital or university.
