(*) If you apply for category 2 membership, you will be requested to send a proof of status. Please make sure you have it close before your start filling the online application form. If you have to send it later to complete your file, you can do so by e-mail. Allied professionals and students need to send a confirmation letter from their Head of Department to prove their status or a copy of their student card showing the expiration date. Embryologists have to register at the ordinary membership fee unless we receive a letter in which their Head of Department confirms they work in a routine environment as a lab technician. You can download and use this template

If we do not receive a proper proof of status within 2 weeks after the membership application is submitted, your application will be cancelled. 

Please allow 2 days up to one week for your membership to be (re-)activated. 

To avoid the process of having to renew your membership every year, ESHRE offers its members the possibility of signing up as a member for three years. This means that when you renew your membership, you pay a fee of 180 Euro (3 x 60 Euro instead of 3 x 70 Euro) for ordinary membership or 90 Euro (3 x 30 Euro) for Allied professional and student membership. Your membership will then be activated for three consecutive years.
