For new members the standard method of payment is 1 or 4 invoices per year based on your selection in the application form. Other methods of payment are listed below.


If you have chosen to pay your membership fee by yourself, an invoice will be sent to your home address (once or four times a year).


Paying an e-invoice is easy. You receive invoices in Netbank. All you have to do is check the invoice information and confirm it. Make an agreement on e-invoice in your Netbank.

From salary

In some companies it is a common practice that the membership fee is reduced directly from a member's salary. If this is the case at your workplace, fill out the mandate form and deliver it to your salary department. One copy of it must also be sent back to ASIA.

Members in abeyance may approach ASIA for advice and guidance, and receive the ASIA magazine at a designated home address abroad.
