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.
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).
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:

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:
Government & NGO’s
