Online application for renewal of registration opens six to eight weeks before your registration expires. AHPRA will send you a reminder when your renewal of registration is due. Look for this as confirmation that online renewal is open.
If you do not renew your general or non-practising registration by 30 November each year, or within the following one month late period, your registration will lapse and your name will be removed from the national register of practitioners.
Provisional registration is required to be renewed annually by the anniversary of the date you were first granted provisional registration. AHPRA will send you a reminder when your renewal of provisional registration is due.
If your general registration lapsed on 1 January 2020 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. If submitting a fast track application, you cannot practise until your application is approved and your registration details are updated on the national register of practitioners.
