Creating a payment document
Payment for participation in the Forum is to be made after the Organizing Committee has approved your application for participation and you have received your invitation to REW 2022.
After receiving your invitation, we kindly ask to confirm your participation in the Forum via the Roscongress personal account and only then to proceed with payment for participation.
To pay the participation fee for the Forum, participants should go to the ‘My events’ section of the Roscongress personal account and select REW. Next, go to the ‘Event dashboard’ section and open the ‘Payment’ section, as shown on the chart below.
In this section participants 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 the information of the individual or legal entity making the payment.
Changes to payer’s information can only be made via the Roscongress Foundation specialist. The contact information can be found in the Roscongress personal account or by contacting the Forum information centre by phone at +7 (495) 640 5844.

Making the payment
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 may 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 participants can enter their bank card details and confirm payment. The name on the bank card must match the payer’s name in the agreement. The payment will go through immediately.
Payments are made in Russian roubles. Acceptable payment forms include:
- Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Union Pay, and MIR payment system cards issued by Russian banks;
- Union Pay payment system cards issued by foreign banks.
Before proceeding to payment, please make sure that:
- there are sufficient funds on the bank card
- the payer’s bank has not set a one-time transfer amount limit
Should a participant have any questions regarding payment (including if the payment does not go through), they can get in touch with their Roscongress Foundation specialist.
The payment date will be considered to be the day 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 Roscongress personal account.
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 REW 2022 venue.
Currency and bank card transactions
Please note the following currency exchange restrictions:
- only USD and EUR cash can be freely exchanged for RUB cash.
- you must present your ID (passport) for transactions over RUB 40,000.
- there is NO exchanging non-cash currency for RUB cash using MasterCard or Visa bank cards issued outside of Russia. It is also not possible to withdraw RUB cash from these cards.
Follow currency exchange updates on the official website of the Bank of Russia at cbr.ru.
We do recommend having cash with you for the entire duration of the Forum due to restricted use of foreign bank cards in Russia.
The use of MIR and UnionPay cards in Russia is not restricted in any currency. We do recommend participants to get a new card/bring an existing card of these systems, if possible.
Please note that UnionPay has started its operations in Russia relatively recently. Therefore, cards of this payment system may occasionally malfunction.
