Before completing your application for affiliation, we recommend that you familiarise yourself with the Articles of Association, Rules and Directives of ARIF, available in the “documents to download” section.

Once your file is complete with all the documents required by Directive 1 of ARIF, and upon payment of the first membership fee, the decision on your admission will normally be delivered in less than 30 days.

Admission may be conditional on a in-depth review of your application. In this case, the Admission Commission, which meets at least once a month, will invite you for a brief interview to better understand your business activity.

With the exception of the criminal record, which must be submitted in original and not be older than six months, all the other personal documents can be provided in original copy signed by the person.

To facilitate the application process, ARIF’s secretariat will answer your calls for free at the telephone number +41 (0)22 310 07 35 from Monday to Thursday from 09:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon and from 01:30 p.m. to 05:00 p.m., and on Friday from 09:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and from 01:30 p.m. to 04:00 p.m.
