Payment of Overseas Memberships

Because of mounting concerns from Overseas Members regarding the high fees charged by banks for bank drafts in a foreign currency, the Society has decided to accept personal/bank cheques in certain overseas currencies. Cheques must be in that country's own currency and drawn on a bank in that same country. We will now accept cheques in:

  • Australian dollars
  • Canadian dollars
  • German deutsch marks
  • Nederland gilders
  • Hong Kong dollars
  • Singapore dollars
  • U.S. dollars
  • British sterling
  • Swiss francs.

Our bank will not accept cheques in Japanese yen or Spanish currency.

The amount of the cheques should be calculated at the current exchange rate on the day of payment. A small amount should be added to help us meet our bank charges incurred when converting the cheques to New Zealand dollars.
