Frequently Asked Questions
How do I compete at the NPC Worldwide INVICTUS IFBB Pro Qualifier for Free?
You must win an open overall at any 2022 Center Podium contest. This includes events in the USA, Russia, and Serbia.
How do I win a free flight and hotel the the INVICTUS IFBB Pro Qualifier?
When you win the overall, you will stay to the end of the show for a final comparison with the winners of each division. All division champions will be lined up and compared. Judges will choose the two athletes that are the most prepared to become an IFBB Pro.
If you win, you will receive free registration, a 3-night hotel stay at the host hotel, and roundtrip airfare to the NPC Worldwide INVICTUS IFBB Pro Qualifier.
Hotel: We will book your hotel stay. We pay for 3-nights of room and tax. You are responsible to pay for incidentals and to provide a credit card for a deposit on the room.
Flight: You will book your flight. When you arrive in Kazakhstan, you must provide your receipt for your flight. You will be reimbursed by your choice of a bank check, Paypal Payment, or cash in US dollars. We are not responsible for any transfer or currency conversion fees. We will reimburse for up to $350. If your flight is more than $350, you will be responsible for the difference.
Do I need to qualify for these NPC Worldwide event?
No qualification is required.
Do I need an NPC Worldwide Membership?
Yes, you can get your NPC Worldwide Annual Membership HERE.
Can I also compete in other federations?
Yes! You can compete in any federation. You will NOT be banned, punished, or marked down if you compete in another federation. We believe you have the right to compete anywhere you like and support your passion to compete on any stage. After you earn IFBB Pro Status, you may not compete or participate in events by another league.
What if the show is cancelled?
If the show is canceled, you will receive a full refund. If it is rescheduled, then your registration will be transferred to the new date. You can learn more about our refund policy HERE. You can follow our COVID-19 related updates HERE.
I am pro or “elite” in another federation, can I compete in the IFBB Pro League?
Yes, but you have to give up your pro or “elite” status first.
Contact the IFBB Pro League office to rescind your status with the other organization and receive permission to compete in the NPC. You will not be automatically granted IFBB Pro League PRO status, you will have to earn IFBB Pro status. This is typically a much higher level of competition than any other league. After all, it is the only path to the Mr. Olympia!
Do I need to be a citizen in the counrty where the event takes place?
No, the NPC Worldwide events are open to competitors from every country in the world.
Do I need a visa to travel to Russia or Kazakhstan?
It depends on where you are a citizen. Russia has the most strict visa requirements. Kazakhstan do not require visas from Russia, and most of Europe and the West.
If you are American, YOU NEED A VISA in Russia but not Kazakhstan. You can use a third party to set up your visa. It is a little unnerving the first time as you must send your passport to the Russian Embassy via a third party. We have used the website www.rushmytravelvisa.com with much success. Be sure to begin the process at least 45 days prior to travel to avoid extra fees.
You can also request a visa directly from the Embassy to avoid fees, but this process can be a bit more difficult.
We recommend that you contact the embassy of the country to which you plan to travel to find out the latest visa requirements or possible travel restrictions.
