Default Re: AHPRA form finally sent /TImeline will be updated

Some good news! My partner has finally got her "In Principal Approval of Registration" email. I had zero contact from AHPRA between submitting the application and getting the registration, so everything was submitted correct first time!

Here are the final timings:
10/07/15 - Application posted to Sydney by Royal Mail
23/07/15 - Application delivered (Royal mail tracking)
30/07/15 - Application received (email acknowledgment)
17/08/15 - I contacted AHPRA via email asking for an update - they gave a copy and paste reply saying it can take a long time
10/09/15 - In Principal Approcal of Registration

Here is a snipit of the letter for anyone else who may be interested:
"The NMBA has assessed your application for general registration as a registered nurse, in accordance with the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law Act 2009 (National Law) and has decided that you are eligible for registration subject to proof of identity."

She has to provide proof of identity (passport + visa) plus either proof of address or an offer of employement at an AHPRA office, and sign a statutory declaration stating she is still registered with the NMC.

An import thing to note is this has to be completed within 12 mnoths, however it states that the default time frame is 90 days and we have to reply to the email to confirm we require the 12 months, otherwise they will withdraw the application after 90 days!

As out flight is not until 03/06/2016 I will be doing this now.

I had to be organised with the flights, I have used airmiles and they only allow 2 seats per flight for airmiles, so I basically had to book the flgiht a year in advance if I wanted to use the miles.

There is a contact us section on the AHPRA website, you can fill a form in and just ask for an update, I did this but as I said previously I just got a copy and paste reply and it did not help. No harm doing it though, and no issue with time differences or expensive phone calls.

I used Royal Mail and had to chase delivery, I used their tracked service which was meant to take 3 to 4 days but this only tracks it to Heathrow, after here no updates until it arrives. Mine was sat at Sydney airport for a over a week. Not RM fault but I'd highly recommend paying the extra for DHL etc. So it avoids Aus post.

Yeah the syllabus was 90 pages or so, the notary charged £10 a document and they just signed front page and then tied the rest together.

Not sure if they recognise originals, they may question it not being certified even though it is clearly an original due to them following the rules to the letter.

Also depending on if you're doing Anmac or skilled visa you may need more copies.

Thanks mgreaves, I have already done visa and anmac, so this is my final step thankfully, anmac was a breeze compared to AHPRA. I'll drop AHPRA an email I think to clarify.

Just a quick question before I send, do I need the declaration on the cv certified ? As my notary seems to think so? Thanks all nearly there.....

The CV needs to be an original, so no need to certify it. Sign with the declaration and send that exact CV.

It will be rejected if you send a copy and you will have to resend it, not sure if it is this thread or another but I've seen this happen recently.

Great thanks mgreaves I thought so but by notary said any declaration should be witnessed, I know this was tha case for anmac but could see the AHPRA website didn't request it, hoping to get it right first time so really appreciate your advice.

You see, this is what REALLY annoys me about this whole thing! AHPRA is there (presumably) to protect Australians as patients and Australian hospitals. It is THEIR protective body against potential law suites. Yet when a hospital wants to know what AHPRA is up to, instead of going and asking AHPRA - they harrass candidates who are most probably in another country.

The clue in this is the "A" in AHPRA - it stands for "AUSTRALIAN".

Maybe you should be advising AHPRA that the hospital concerned doesn't understand it's own processes - there has to be a QA failure in that somewhere!
