The due date for payment is 28 (or 29) February of the year for your account to be on good standing. It is to be noted that due to the international transfer and local bank process, it might take a few days to receive the fund transfer into our bank account.AFRINIC recommends that the Resource Member ensures that the payment is effected much earlier to ensure that it reaches AFRINIC on/before the date of the invoice due.

No. Such outstanding balances which relate to annual membership fees and/or relating penalty will be indicated as due on MyAFRINIC portal and hence the organisation will NOT be in good standing.

It depends on the payment method opted.  Credit card payment is the quickest method.   

Wire transfers will take some days to reach AFRINIC.

After the payment reaches AFRINIC, it may take one or two days for the good standing status to be updated.

AFRINIC has two modes of payment:

  1. Credit card via our portal my.afrinic.net (Option 1) which is recommended as it is the fastest option - To note that only the registered billing contact can trigger payment through credit card. Any change in billing contact should be addressed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  2. Wire Transfer - International bank transfers may take several days to reach AFRINIC’s account, therefore it is the member’s responsibility to ensure that the payment is made in time according to AFRINIC billing timeline and highly advised:
    1. To quote the invoice Ref number and your organisation name when you make the bank transfer. This will allow us to track the funds and post it to your account with minimum delay.
    2. That Purchase Orders (POs) are not required and shall not be accepted as a valid proof of payment.
    3. To send a copy of the swift transaction from your bank after you have initiated the payment to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. This will facilitate tracking of the funds as well.

An organisation that is not in good standing will not be able to vote in Board elections, or vote on any resolutions presented to Members.  

The organisation will also be denied any additional services from AFRINIC.

If annual fees remain unpaid after 6 months, then the closure process will be initiated, and the organisation may lose its AFRINIC membership and  have its Internet Number Resources reclaimed.

Login to the MyAFRINIC portal, and a message should appear on the screen if your organisation is not in good standing.  To be sure, you can also view your statement of account and check whether there is an unpaid balance.

If there is an unpaid balance, check whether it’s from an invoice that is overdue (in which case the member is not in good standing), or an invoice that has not yet reached its due date (in which case the member is still in good standing, until the due date arrives).

The term “Member in good standing” means an AFRINIC Member who has completed all necessary formalities, whose membership remains current, and who has no unsettled financial debt due to AFRINIC (see Bylaws article 6.4(iii)). Invoices that have been issued, but that have not yet reached the date when payment is due, shall not be considered as fees that are due to AFRINIC.
