Registration late payment period ends on 31 October!
The AMA urges all members who have missed the 30 September deadline for medical registration renewal to act immediately!
If you have failed to lodge your application to renew by 30 September, there is a late payment period until 31 October.
Leaving your renewal to the last minute of the late payment period may have serious consequences for your practice.
If you need to lodge your application to renew during the late payment period, you will have to pay a late fee of $168 in addition to the renewal fee of $670.
If you fail to lodge your application to renew your registration during the late payment period, your registration will automatically lapse from 1 November.
Once your registration has lapsed, you will have until 30 November to apply to AHPRA for a fast-track application for re-registration. You will have to pay a fast-track application fee of $335, in addition to the registration fee of $670.
Under the National Law, there is no option for AHPRA or the Medical Board to renew your registration after it has lapsed without a new application. Should your registration lapse, you will not be able to practise until your new registration application has been granted.
If you have not yet renewed your registration, you would have received electronic and/or hardcopy reminders from AHPRA. If you have not received any reminders to renew or are unsure if you are due to renew, please check the National Register at www.medicalboard.gov.au or contact AHPRA on 1300 419 495.
If you have left your renewal until now, you should renew online at www.ahpra.gov.au. To do this, you will need to know your User ID and your password. Your registration renewal reminders have included these details. If you have misplaced your User ID and password, contact AHPRA on 1300 419 495 or reset your password online via AHPRA’s online services accessed through ‘Your account’ at the top right of the AHPRA homepage. Please note that your User ID is different to your registration number that appears on the National Register.
