Another Museumkaart question

Now the rules have been changed I'm looking at ways of getting a card this month. I'm coming to Haarlem for four days, the Amsterdam for five. On a previous occasion I registered the card online, got it sent to my Amsterdam hotel and picked it up three months later on a second visit. This time, if I get a temp card immediately on arrival, at the Frans Hals and registered it online, how quickly would the authorities send the card, to my Amsterdam hotel, as before?.

General consensus is about 3 to 5 days.

I'm guessing that because you're from the UK you may have an easier time paying the registration fee via bank transfer? I'm in the US, and payment by that method incurs a high fee. I'm trying to figure it out.

They don't take credit cards?

The only options I saw were "iban" and "Bic". So I don't see a way to register the card easily as a US resident.

Thanks for the prompt. I just accessed my account on line and saved my IBAN and BIC numbers.

it seems that US banks are not party to the IBAN system.

<paying the registration fee via bank transfer?>

didnt even notice that. There is now an extra registration fee (4.95 euros) for the registration of the card for when the card needs to be sent to another EU member state (except Romenia which you cant use to register)

<They don't take credit cards?>

No, direct debit only

<So I don't see a way to register the card easily as a US resident.>

You cant even choose USA as a country

Has someone recently contacted Museumkaart and asked if it is still possible to register from other countries via e-mail?

Yes, I contacted them on Monday. They only partially answered my question, and I wrote back from clarification. Part of the answer could be important for people looking to get it mailed locally and yet register with a foreign bank account: "direct debit is not possible with a foreign bank account number and a Dutch address." They explained that use of a foreign bank account is only possible with a foreign address registration (again, a page which does not list the US).
