Default Occupational Therapy Registration New Zealand

Hi,

So I am thinking about making the move.

My boyfriend is from New Zealand. So I was thinking of going out there prior to starting any NZ registration process as may have some time away from OT with the plan to return in the future.

Is it possible to start the registration process once already in NZ? or does it have to be done within the UK prior to leaving as obviously I won't be in the UK.

Hope someone can help with my query.

Thanks,
Lois

Hi we haven't figured that bit out yet. Could be sponsorship with his family business initially or partnership.

I'm more curious of whether I could start the NZ OT registration process once out there 😊

Occupational therapists. With regard to the overseas assessment and occupational registration it will be up to you when you decide to apply. NZ or UK makes no difference unless you need the NZ registration to help with a job search.

Apologies for hijacking this post, but I had a question about New Zealand registration. If I were to register for New Zealand, could I then attempt to register in Australia having not worked in New Zealand? Just trying to think of ways of avoiding 6 months supervised practice in Australia/possible delays in getting work with limited registration in Australia. I’ve heard that New Zealand registered OTs have a much more straight forward route with APHRA.

Thank you in advance.
