Is your registration renewal due now?

28 Jul 2010

Was your registration due on 30 June? Did you renew on time?

If not, you MUST renew your registration now – before 31 July 2010 – or your registration will lapse and you will not be able to practise.

To renew your general registration now:

  • Get your User ID and Password - sent to you in the last two weeks in a letter from AHPRA - and follow the prompts to renew online

    If you cannot find your User ID and Password, call 1300 419 495 and an AHPRA team member will provide you with a password so you can go online to renew
  • Mail your hard copy renewal application to AHPRA at GPO Box 9958 in your capital city today to make sure we receive your application by 31 July


Limited registration

If you have Limited Registration and your renewal is due now, submit your renewal application in hard copy to GPO Box 9958 in your capital city. Once you have lodged your renewal, you can continue to practice your profession whilst it is assessed.

Renewal for Limited registrants is not automatic, as the information you provide must be reviewed. Because every application is different, we cannot give you a precise time in which your application will be processed. We can reassure you that all our offices are now processing all renewal applications in the order they have been received.


Opting out

If you want to let your registration lapse, please let us know in writing.


Renewal due later in 2010?

If your registration renewal is due later this year, we will send you a letter with your User ID and Password so you can renew in time.


Registration status?

If you want to check your registration status, go to the Registers of Practitioners, enter your details and follow the prompts.

If your contact details are wrong, you can login with your User ID and password to update them at any time.
