For transfers of unused or excess IPv4 addresses and/or AS numbers (including inbound inter-RIR transfers, that is, transfers from a member of another RIR to an APNIC account):
All recipient APNIC accounts will be asked to provide a detailed plan for the use of the transferred resource.
APNIC does not allow the transfer of addresses delegated from the 103/8 free pool for a minimum of five years after the original delegation. This applies to IPv4 transfers including mergers, acquisitions, or reorganization. If the reason for the original request is no longer valid, the resources should be returned to APNIC.
If this is the initial IPv4 transfer to an existing account holding no IP addresses, or an IPv4 transfer to a new account, you will be required to pay an Annual Membership fee, and this must be paid before APNIC completes the transfer.
For all other recipient APNIC accounts, you need to pay a transfer fee before receiving the IPv4 transfer.
In cases where there is a transfer from an APNIC account holder to a member of another RIR (outbound inter-RIR transfers), the APNIC account holder will be charged the transfer fee. All objects associated with the transferred resource(s) (for example, sub-assignments, route and domain objects), if any, will be deleted from the APNIC Whois Database.
For historical Internet number resource transfers, the recipient of the transfer must be an APNIC Member. For historical Internet number resource transfers and transfers due to mergers, acquisitions and/or reorganization:
If this transfer is to an existing account that holds no IP addresses, or a transfer to a new account, you will be required to pay an Annual Membership fee, and this must be paid before APNIC completes the transfer.
For all other recipient APNIC accounts, you need to pay a transfer fee before receiving the transfer.
When the transfer is complete:
The source entity will no longer have any rights to the transferred IP addresses and AS number resources. These resources will be registered to the recipient entity.
For transfers where the recipient entity is an APNIC account holder, this may result in the recipient account paying higher annual Membership fees at their next renewal.
All transferred resources are subject to current APNIC policies (see Section 11.3. Transfer of Historical Internet resources).
