  2. Download the application form for Full Membership or Associate Membership OR fill in the form online.
  3. With effect from 1 July, 2021, new members (Full and Associate) will only be charged an one-off Membership Initiation Fee (MIF) of HK$2400/HK240 (US $300/US$30) for Full / Associate members respectively. Once the individuals or organisations have paid the MIF, they will become “Life Member” of CIFA.
