The Nursing Registration process can be started by downloading all the application forms from www.ahpra.gov.au.


In order to practice nursing in Australia, you are required to register with AHPRA.

Processing Time

The Nursing Registration process can take anywhere from two to 12 months, so if you need to renew your registration in order to re-enter the workforce, or are planning on traveling to Australia, you should start your Nursing Registration application immediately. It is essential to have valid Nursing Registration before a sponsorship visa application can be finalized, so if you are registered overseas early applications for Nursing Registration are essential.

Mutual Recognition

Mutual Recognition enables you to apply for Nursing Registration in Australia if you are already Registered in New Zealand without having to duplicate the initial application process. The process requires less documentation and can often be granted on the spot if you make your application in person.
