Registration is the pilgrim’s gateway for WYD Rio2013.
It is through registration that young people officially become part of WYD Rio2013. This is how we can know what pilgrims require so that we can best meet their needs (accommodation, meals, transportation ...). That is why it is so important that you register in anticipation.

Registration is made as a group by the group leader. You will also have a second group leader. In mixed gender groups, it is best if one of the leaders is male and the other female. Each group may have a maximum of 50 members, including the leaders.
There is not a closed number of vacancies, all are welcome for JMJ Rio2013.
It is important that pilgrim groups make their registration in anticipation. It may occur that groups that register close to the date of the event will not have all the package options available.
You can form a group of pilgrims or join a group already formed (in the diocese, city, parish, school, college, course, etc.). If it not possible for you to join a group, you may register individually by enrolling yourself as the group leader.
Priests must register as pilgrims and in the category option choose “priest”.
It is also possible to opt for attending confessions during WYD Rio2013. Later on further information will be sent regarding your performance during WYD Rio2013.
WYD is an open event for the participation of all. However, only those older than 14 years (by the first day of the event, July 23) will be able to officially register as pilgrims - and consequentially benefit from the accommodation, meals and transport options.
Pilgrim groups that wish to bring children under 14 years will be completely responsible for them, including their accommodation, meals and transport. The child will not be able to be registered as a pilgrim.
Volunteer candidates that were not chosen must make their registration as pilgrims.
It is possible to add more members to the group as long as the total payment hasn’t been made.
If the total payment has been made and you still need to register more pilgrims, create a new group and then do the link between groups.
If the group has not made the total payment, it is possible to make modifications at any moment in the private area of the group.
If the group has made the total payment, the data informed will only be able to be modified in April.
The group leader may substitute the group members in case of resignation, but cancelling group members that have already made total payment is not possible.
The group leader may also be substituted. The group leader itself must make the substitution in the private area.
There are different prices according to the type of package (which may or may not include accommodation and meals), and by country classification. To help ensure that pilgrims from economically poorer countries can participate in WYD, the countries are classified into classes A, B and C. Country classification and type of package define the prices. Prices are listed in the Pilgrim Registration Manual.
The system does not allow installment, however, payments may be made in the following ways:
Payment in the total amount (i.e. the total amount is 100, referring to 50 group members in a group. Make the payment of 100 – payment in the total amount).
Partial payment (i.e. the total amount is 100, referring to 50 group members. Make a payment of 50, referring to 25 members. Later on make a payment of 10, referring to 5 members, and then make a payment of 40, referring to 20 members, completing the amount of 100 – this is the way for partial payment).
For credit card payment only Visa or MasterCard are accepted. If any errors occur, talk to your bank for more information.
More than one credit card may be used by group.
The international payment option is destined only to international pilgrims.
All bank transfer information must be printed from the private area of the group and taken to the bank in the moment of payment.
Do not forget to indicate the transfer code in the document
Once chosen a payment option, it is not possible to change it.
The conciliation may take a few days. Verify that the number of pilgrims for which you have made the payment corresponds to the number of estimated pilgrims in the “group data”. If not, please correct it.
If the status is paid, your group is officially enrolled in the WYD Rio2013. Wait because soon you will receive all information about WYD in your email. Follow all the news through our official website.
Groups with more than 50 people must be divided into subgroups of up to 50 group members, and then may be linked between each other through a main group.
First a main group must be chosen and it will provide the subgroups with its group ID and group name.
The subgroup then makes the request for link between groups in the private area of the group.
The main group will then receive an email to accept or not the request for the linking.
The link between groups does not guarantee the groups will stay together. The accommodation offered by LOC (Local Organization Committee) will be made according to the language region. Other factors may also be decisive, for example, the payment distance between the groups. Look at the frequently asked questions in the accommodation page for more information.
Pilgrims from certain countries need a visa to enter Brazil. For more information, check the website or search for the Brazilian consulate in your country. Check in anticipation about the procedure for visa application. This process can take a few days.
To obtain a free visa, the “registration protocol” must be printed for each pilgrim; it is available in the private area of the group.
You must complete the electronic form, available in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website, and take the registration protocol, the passport or equivalent travel document to the embassy or consulate in your country and apply for the visa.

Tour buses must have credentials and will not be allowed to travel in the city during the days of the event. We will contact the groups that use this type of transport for more information.
The drivers are the pilgrims’ responsibility. To get accommodation provided by WYD they must be registered as pilgrims along with the group and they will have the same accommodation as the pilgrims.
The official registration for Mission Week is exclusive for international pilgrims and is made through the private area of the group.
To participate in Mission Week, first get to know the dioceses through our official website: http://www.rio2013.com/en/mission-week
After choosing the Diocese, the group leader will register in the private area of the group in the “group data”.
For further information, contact the Diocese directly.
