Specifically, the selected students have a valid passport meeting the visa regulations of the host country.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) finances the expenses for international travel of the team.Students aiming to go through the Mathematical Olympiad programme leading to international participation should note that Regional Mathematical Olympiad is the first essential step for the programme.
To appear for the RMO, the students should connect with the Regional Mathematical Olympiad coordinator of their region well in advance for enrollment and payment of stipulated (nominal) fees.
