20.01.2005 Inscriptions payment re-start January 22
Inscriptions began on the 27th of September 2004. To do the inscription it was necessary to have an id or passport. An office of the Bank of Brazil was installed next to the registration tent. The payment of the inscriptions was a political call towards the self-sustainability of the WSF, since it has an important function in maintaining the WSF's capacity to finance its own activities. Aware of the differences in the payment capacities of the participants, the Organizing Committee of the WSF stipulated differential prices.
