I was/am a member in another country (or a D.I.M.) – how do I transfer to Australian membership?
If you are a current member elsewhere, any financial credit for the remaining portion of your current year’s membership will be honoured. If you have lapsed in the other country, you will need to pay the subscription fee for the coming year.
You will need to fill in the International Transfer Form (PDF).
This form will need to be posted with payment to
The Membership Secretary
Australian Mensa Inc
Suite 12, 8-12 Stafford St
Midland WA 6056
For credit card payments or if you are still financial, you may scan and email the form to firstname.lastname@example.org
By Mensa International rules, we must obtain direct confirmation from the overseas Mensa membership officer. This can take a while, but in the meantime you will be welcome to attend local events. Once your membership is confirmed and you then become a member of Australian Mensa, you will, of course enjoy all the benefits of membership.
In order to speed up the process, email the Membership Secretary at email@example.com so that the confirmation procedure can be started even before your form arrives in the post.
We occasionally get transfer applications from people claiming overseas membership who are in fact not members. These are always ultimately rejected but can waste time for officers and support staff both in Australia and overseas.
