What's the registration process for a .nr top-level domain?

How do I pay for my domain name?

The instructions at http://www.cenpac.net.nr/dns/ are pretty strange:

For the moment we accept only money transfers and cash at our office (the information will be given to you after you register). The domain will be reserved for a period of one month till we receive the payment. We will then activate your domain.

This is how we registered Domai.nr. It seemed very strange to use a wire transfer to send money to an Australian bank account—almost like a Nigerian email scam—but it was completely legitimate.

We wired the money, emailed the CENPAC technical contact for Nauru (.nr), and they activated our domain within a day.
