Online uploads for documents

27 Mar 2020

The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (Ahpra) has introduced an online upload service to receive applications, forms and supporting documents as part of the response to the way individuals are registered in the context of COVID-19.

This means applicants and registrants can submit their applications, forms and supporting documents to Ahpra online instead of sending hardcopy documents to Ahpra in the mail.

This is one of the measures Ahpra is introducing to support social distancing requirements. For now, it reduces the need for applicants and registrants to come into Ahpra offices to lodge applications.

Certified copies of documents are still required as indicated on forms.

To be uploaded, documents must be:

  •  in colour, clear and legible
  • less than 10MB, and
  • in one of the following formats: .JPG, .JPEG, .GIF, .PNG, .PDF, .TIF, .TIFF.

To upload documents or for more information go to the Online upload page
