General registration

See the National Board’s accreditation page for a list of the qualifications required for general registration.

Renewal of registration

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 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

Limited registration

If you currently hold registration without an annual practising certificate with The Occupational Therapy Board of New Zealand and are applying for registration in Australia under the provisions of the Trans Tasman Mutual Recognition Act, you can apply online  for non-practising registration.
