Nursing Resgistration: applicants must present within three months
On of the respected migration agents who posts on our sister site has posted the following (which I've copied and pasted).
This now appears to be confirmed in correspondence from AHPRA to several of our clients.
Once AHPRA In Principle Approval Of Registration is granted, applicants must now present themselves at an AHPRA office within three months of the letter. Their office has said that they no longer give 12 months for applicants to present as before.
If additional costs are a factor, then we would not recommend visa applicants apply to AHPRA too early. Preferably you would want to have your visa grant already, as you will only have 12 weeks to turn up at an AHPRA office to activate full registration, unless of course you are ok about flying there beforehand with the purpose of activating your registration.
