Payment of fees should be done online via this registration system. This can be done using most major credit or debit cards.

There are only two exceptions to this rule:

  • If you live in a country outside Europe where credit cards may not work (a few countries in Middle East and Africa), then you can also write an email to support@orzone.com and state your name and which exam you are applying for.
  • If your hospital (or other external party) wishes to pay for you or a group of colleagues via invoice and bank transfer then have them contact support@orzone.com and include information for which names they wish to pay for and address/email for invoice.
A small handling fee will be added to manually processed payments.

Any cancellation must be submitted to the exam secretariat (exam@esgo.org) in writing.
