Payment of membership fees

Since 2022, the size of ICOM membership fees for Belarus was changed, in exchange for which stikers are issued to be pasted on the membership card. Now the basic contribution (Regular) is 23 euros, and for pensioners (Retired) and students (Student) – 11 euros per year.

This happened because the Executive Board of ICOM International, based on data from the International Monetary Fund, decided to change the terms of payment of contributions for several countries. In terms of solvency, ICOM divides countries into four categories, which reflect the different capacities of the national economy. Earlier Belarus belonged to the 2nd category, and now it has moved to the 3rd category.

Membership dues are paid by bank transfer to the account BY77ALFA30152593530010270000 «Alfa-Bank» CJSC, ALFABY2X Bank BIK, ICOM Belarus’ UNP – 101570601, the purpose of the payment is to pay membership dues in the amount corresponding to the contribution in Belarusian rubles. at the rate of the National Bank of the Republic of Belarus at the time of payment + 5 BYN. We receive stickers from Paris, transferring there the amount converted into euros from the ICOM Belarus account in Belarusian rubles. Banking operations for converting and transferring funds are subject to a commission, for which we collect an additional 5 BYN.

When making a payment in the payment document, be sure to indicate the name and surname of the ICOM MEMBER, and not his friend, colleague or relative making the payment. The contribution is reflected electronically on the ICOM account, but if it is unnamed or associated with an unfamiliar surname, then this creates accounting difficulties and takes time and effort to find out. We ask you to treat our work with respect.
