TWO ROUTES TO MEMBERSHIP

There are two pathways to IMC membership: the education route and the experience route. It is planned that eventually the experience route will be phased out, and the membership journey will only be possible through the education route (except for Fellows). For more information please click here.

 

1. Membership by Education

The journey to membership via the education route is the recommended one since this strengthens the skills and knowledge of members and by consequence the wider industry. Please click here for further information.

 

2. Membership by Experience

To follow suit with other professional bodies, membership by experience is offered to those practitioners who meet the necessary criteria in any membership tier to be members of the IMC.

 

New Membership Levels

The IMC offers 5 different levels of annual membership for individuals with each offering its own set of benefits:

 

Membership Tier Requirements Total in Euro
Student An individual who is in current full-time education. €125
Academic An individual whose full-time activity is dedicated to teaching or research within the investment migration industry or related field. €125
Associate An individual who has less than 5 years of work experience within the field of investment migration. €275
Professional An individual who has more than 5 years of work experience within the field of investment migration. €400
Fellow The highest level of membership. An individual who has been a professional member of the IMC for 5 consecutive years and has 10+ years of working experience with 3 years at senior level. €500

 

In order for the IMC to assess an applicant’s suitability for membership in the Fellow category, the Secretariat undertakes a comprehensive review of the applicant’s background experience and a due diligence exercise is carried out. Subsequently a one-time fee of Eur500 is levied to cover the administration costs related to this work.

 

Corporate and Organisations Membership

Obtaining company recognition in the investment migration industry demonstrates to clients that your company is dedicated to staying at the forefront of the latest industry standards and procedures.

 

With IMC corporate membership you can enroll a number of individuals as a group of 10 or 15 with one fee and one invoice on an annual subscription, making it simpler for an organization to register their team.

 

There are two levels of corporate membership:

1. Corporate
2. Corporate PLUS

 

Government & NGO’s

Membership and annual fee is on request.
