All attendees must review and accept the Code of Conduct when registering.
You can pre-register online for Furry Migration here, or register at the door during the convention. Online pre-registration requires payment to be made with a credit/debit card at time of pre-registration. However, attendees who pre-register online receive a discounted rate from our at-door pricing.
We may also occasionally offer in-person pre-registration during local Minnesota Furs events. An announcement will be made online for any Minnesota Furs events which we plan to offer in-person pre-registration at.
Furry Migration currently does not accept mail-in registrations, or hold online pre-registrations for payment at-door.
After completing your pre-registration, you should automatically receive an email confirmation immediately. This can sometimes take 5-10 minutes, so please be patient.
If you have not received your confirmation email after that time, we ask that you please double-check your payment to verify if it was processed. If it has, please reach out to Registration using the Contact Us form, linked in the Contact menu at the top of this page, and we will provide you with a copy of your confirmation details.
Once you’ve received your confirmation email, sit back, relax, and carry on with life. We’ll see you at the convention!
If there are any concerns with your registration, we’ll reach out to you using the email address provided during pre-registration.
Absolutely! Both badge level upgrades and badge name changes can be made during the pre-registration period. In order to change/upgrade your badge you’ll need to log into your registration account.
If you have not created a login before, then select the ‘claim my account’ option and follow the prompts. Once logged in, go to Registrations from the top and select the convention name. Click the edit button and update the sections you wish to change, then click the save button once you’ve finished. For badge upgrades, you’ll be prompted to enter your card details to pay for the difference between your original badge level and the new one. Upgrades are not confirmed until this payment is made.
After pre-registration closes:
All requests for badge name changes must be made in person at the convention and will incur a $10 charge. Once the badge has been handed off to the attendee, all names are final.
Badge upgrades at the convention are possible, however they are limited based on availability. Attendees that upgrade to Sponsor or Super Sponsor at the door may not receive all perks guaranteed to individuals who pre-registered at those levels. Attendees wishing to upgrade after receiving their original badge will be required to surrender the original badge in exchange for the upgraded one.
Note: In the event the badge was purchased for another, the original attendee is viewed as the owner of the badge, not the purchaser. Requests for badge transfers require the original attendee’s approval in order to be processed.
After pre-registration closes:
Furry Migration does not currently accept badge transfers during the convention.
A valid, government issued photo ID is required for all badge pickups. The following forms of IDs are an example of what is acceptable: driver’s license, state/provincial ID card, passport book or card, and military ID.
Only the registered attendee will be permitted to pick up their badge. Furry Migration does not allow attendees to pick up badges for their friends, significant others or spouses.
Please see the Attending Minors Policy for age-specific guidelines. A completed parental consent form is required for all minors attending Furry Migration.
Having a form notarized means that it was validated by an official, typically a notary public, who confirmed the identity of the person signing it to be legitimate. The notary would then place a special stamp on the form, which tells us that the form was signed by the actual parent/legal guardian of a minor, rather than a friend with really nice penmanship.
Some banks, post offices, copy shops and insurance agencies will offer notary services, in addition to individual public notaries. If you’re not sure where to find a notary public, searching the internet is an excellent place to start.
This policy is in place for two reasons: safety and peace of mind. As a convention, we wish to ensure that we have diligent means to either locate or contact someone in the unlikely event of an emergency. As a parent/guardian, we want you to have peace of mind that your child is where they are supposed to be and with who they are supposed to be with.
We understand that life can complicate plans sometimes. While it is unfortunate you cannot attend, registrations are non refundable.
We offer free badge transfers while pre-registration is open. Perhaps a friend would like to go in your place?
For any questions or concerns regarding badge transfers or refunds, please contact Registration as soon as possible using the Contact Us form linked in the Contact menu at the top of this page.
Our first recommendation is to check with both Operations and Registration to see if a member of our staff or a fellow attendee has turned in a lost badge.
If unable to find your badge, a replacement can be reprinted by Registration at a cost of $20. If the badge is lost again, the full badge price will be charged.
