Accompanying persons older than 12 years sharing a room with a participant must also register as a participant.

Payment

You can pay in one of the following ways:

1. PayPal payments or credit card Payments through PayPal

For credit or debit card payments we use the services of PayPal. However, PayPal charges us a fee for each transaction. Because we try to keep the conference fee as low as possible, we are obliged to charge this cost to participants paying with PayPal. If you pay with PayPal, please make sure that you transfer the amount due including costs. You will find the total amount due including PayPal costs on your registration confirmation. To pay, click the PayPal logo on the confirmation screen you will see after registration or the PayPal logo below to be redirected to their secure website to complete the payment. Your payment will be made to the IMO (payment@imo.net).

2. International bank transfer

International bank transfer payments should be made to:

International Meteor Organization, Mattheessensstraat 60, 2540 Hove, Belgium
Bank account at BNP Paribas Fortis Bank Belgium
BIC bank code: GEBABEBB
IBAN account number: BE30 0014 7327 5911
e-mail: treasurer@imo.net

When paying, make sure that the IBAN account number and BIC bank code are both mentioned! Always contact your local bank to verify charges for international transfers, which are at the participant’s expense.

Transfers in Euro from an EU member state or another EEA country (Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein) should be free, however, or at least no more expensive than a domestic bank transfer, provided they are done correctly.

3. Other payment methods

If you cannot use either the international bank transfer or the PayPal service, please contact the IMO Treasurer for instructions.
