Hi Igor,

This is described in the Patron Import section of the Koha manual:

"If loading patron attributes
the ‘patron_attributes’ field should contain a comma-separated list of
attribute types and values.


   The attribute type code and a colon should precede each value.

      For example: “INSTID:12345,BASEBALL:Cubs”

      This field must be wrapped in quotes if multiple values are defined.

      Since values can contain spaces, additional doubled-quotes may be

         “INSTID:12345,BASEBALL:Cubs,””BASEBALL:White Sox””"

So add a patron_attributes column to your import CSV and in that field
comma-separate all the attributes you want. Each attribute looks like
"LABEL:VALUE" e.g. its label, followed by a colon, followed by a value.
