Why Become a Member?

The strength of the Association and its message comes from its members. As an IMC member, you benefit from the professional development, networking opportunities and information services provided by the association, all of which enhance your business and promote professionalism and high ethical standards.

Being part of the leading global association concerned with investment-related migration, you will benefit from keeping up-to-date on latest trends and developments in the field.

Apply For a Membership

Membership is for individuals and companies (or other legal entities) who wish to become members of the Investment Migration Council, a not-for-profit association within the meaning of Articles 60 et seq. of the Swiss Civil Code and with its registered office in Geneva, Switzerland.


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).

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. On successful completion of the Certification in Investment Migration, Non IMC Members  will become eligible  for membership  of the IMC at Associate level.

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.

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


An individual who is in current full-time education


Per year


An individual whose full-time activity is dedicated to teaching or research within the investment migration industry or related field


Per year


An individual who has less than 5 years of work experience within the field of investment migration


Per year

Per year


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
