Paying the participation fee


To pay the participation fee, the participant should go to the Payment section of the personal web office, enter the payer’s information, and select the payment method (invoice in roubles or bank card for residents of the Russian Federation, or invoice in roubles/US dollars/euros or bank card for non-residents of the Russian Federation). The participant may then select the type of payment document: a participation agreement or invoice/agreement (a single document incorporating both the agreement and invoice for payment).

Please note: when entering the payer’s information, make sure you enter information on the individual or legal entity making the payment.

Changes to payer’s information can only be made via your contact person at the Roscongress Foundation.

  1. save their participation agreement
  2. send a signed copy of the agreement to their Roscongress Foundation contact person
  3. save a payment document
  4. pay the participation fee
  1. save their invoice/agreement to make the payment
  2. pay the participation fee


The participation fee may only be paid by the individual or legal entity indicated as the Client in the participation agreement (invoice/agreement).

To pay by invoice, the payer should contact their bank. Payment may take more than three banking days. When paying by invoice, we also recommend factoring in any commission the bank might charge.

To pay by bank card, the participant should specify their email address in the ‘Confirm Payment Details’ window in order to receive their electronic payment receipt, then confirm the payment details. The standard online payment form will then open, where bank card details can be completed and confirming payment. The name on the bank card must match the payer’s name in the agreement. The payment will go through immediately.

The following bank cards are accepted: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, UnionPay, Diners Club, JCB, and MIR. Payments are made in Russian roubles.

Before proceeding to payment, please make sure that:

  • there are sufficient funds on the bank card
  • the payer’s bank has not set a limit on a one-time transfer amount

Should a participant have any questions regarding payment (including if the payment does not go through), they may get in touch with the Roscongress Foundation specialist.

The payment date will be considered to be that on which the amount due is credited to the account of the Roscongress Foundation. The participant may check whether the sum has been received in the Payment section of the personal web office or by calling the Roscongress Foundation specialist.

Please note that payment of the participation fee on time and in full is a prerequisite to receiving a participation badge and gaining access to the SPIEF 2020 venue.
