In response to COVID-19, applicants and registrants can now send applications, forms and supporting documents to Ahpra online instead of sending us these documents via hardcopy mail. See Online Upload.
For all other circumstances, please use the relevant downloadable form below.
Online application for renewal of registration opens six to eight weeks before your registration expires. Ahpra will send you a reminder when your registration is due. Look for this as confirmation that online renewal is open.
If you do not renew your general, specialist or non-practising registration by 30 November each year, or within the following one month late period, your registration will lapse in accordance with the National Law and your name will be removed from the national register of practitioners.
If your general registration lapsed on 1 January 2023 and you wish to keep practising you must make a new application for registration. In some cases you can use the fast track application for this process. The fast track process is only available for one month after your registration has lapsed.
A fast track application fee is payable in addition to a registration fee. You cannot practise while your fast track application is being assessed. If your registration has lapsed, before you can practise you must wait until your application is approved and your registration details are updated on the national register of practitioners.
See the National Board’s Accreditation section for a list of the qualifications required for general registration.
Provisional registration is granted for a period of 12 months staring from the date of approval. This means applicants for provisional registration are required to pay a registration fee that covers the full 12 month period of registration that is granted.
Should a practitioner become eligible for general registration any time within the 12 month registration period, the practitioner can apply for general registration. There is no application fee to change registration type from provisional registration to general registration.
The registration fee payable to change to general registration is calculated based on the remaining portion of the general registration fee less the unused portion of the provisional registration fee. This ensures that the practitioner is not financially disadvantaged when changing registration types.
This form is to be used when your provisional registration has lapsed and you are required to obtain provisional registration to complete a period of supervised practice (for applicants who completed an approved program of study).
Limited registration for postgraduate training is for those applicants who do not qualify for general registration but wish to undertake postgraduate training. Practitioners with limited registration for postgraduate training must not practise in any capacity outside of their clinical training program. Additionally, practitioners undertaking postgraduate training that requires a clinical component must practise supervised under arrangements approved by the Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia (the Board).
Registration under this category will only be granted for a specific purpose and for a limited time.
