    Hi everyone! :-) i know this question have been asked soooo many times. There's been about a thousand pages of the previous thread but my eyes are hurting from all the reading and I haven't even come close to anything that could answer my questions which are the ff:

    1. Can I submit my IELTS, TOR, and Certificate of Good standing to AHPRA first? then the other requirements such as the completed application form in say 5-6 mos time?

    2. I also would like to clarify if overseas trained nurses wanting to do a bridging program should fill up the AGOS-40 form?

    Thank you so much for your help.

    Yes, fill out the form AGOS-40 and you can find all the instructions at the form also.

    continuation from my previous post:

    3. Has anyone been in a similar situation where they submitted their requirements months before sending the others?

    Thanks again :-)
    Yes, i have tried that also, sent my prc requirements first and it took me 5 months to send my personal documents including the form.

    which ahpra did you apply with and when did you apply? you getting a 2 years validity would be such a blessed one..
    I applied at AHPRA perth, WA last july2011 and i got my LOE sept2011. The school part really did took a lot of my time plus my IELTS exam, so by the time I already had my intake my LOE is expiring so i humbly asked for an extension and it was granted also. I told them that I do not want to start from the very beginning and all the time spent gathering my documents will be put to waste,all the sacrifices of my family gathering my papers will be in vain because I was not working in the philippines back then, but I know they deliberate all the applicants asking for extension, my friend also helped me on how to put that all into writing because I know i will only have one shot.

    Hi twigz.
    But initially, your LOE is only valid for a year and you just requested for an extension am i right?

    Because what the readers are thinking is, you were granted 2 years validity by the time you received your letter of eligibility.. Which is a bit confusing at first. Based from my knowledge, ahpra issues loe which is only valid for a year..
    It happened to me as well.. My loe is valid for a year and i just requested for an extension and i was granted for 6 more months.

    Yes you need to print the form and fill them out as well.Bring passport size photos with white background and if your passport is with you, bring it.If your passport is in the embassy with your application, bring a copy of the bio page.. Bring a valid i.d.No need for an appointment, just go there directly.I had my medicals at nationwide makati. Im not sure if its the same with st.lukes.Sent from my iPad using allnurses.com
    Hi! Thanks anne. Unfortunately, nationwide requires an appointment now because the other doctor is out of the country as of the mment. Need to schedule again next week. . My only problem now is, what if my menstruation falls on the same date of my medicals? Also, will I be able to receive my visa grant last week of march?. My intake is in the 1st week of april .. time is limited for me..
