i am open for any corrections if my reply to this post isn't correct. thanks!

hi! i'm new to this forum and i was wondering if you guys can help me fill out the agos 40 form from ahpra? i have a few questions and i've outlined them below...

1. -principal place of practice address

is this filled out with my current work address in the philippines or my desired work address (state, etc) in australia?

i just wrote the state in oz where i intend to practice.

2. in section d pertaining to registration history the form asks for a category of registration - i dont really know what this means :-(

i wrote professional--- i really am not sue if it was correct, i haven't received any feedback regarding that part.

3. can i send a certified true copy of the statement of service instead of the original?

only certified true copies must be sent aside from your cv which is the original.

4. do you commit to only practice the profession if you have appropriate professional indemnity insurance arrangements in place? i dont have any insurance coverage, is it ok if i tick the no box or should i get one before passing this form?

tick "yes"

5. should the result of my ielts exam be forwarded to a specific state or territory office of aphra? what do you recommend?

submit it to the same address where you sent your papers to be assessed.

6. on the part about agent authorization...

i consent to this application being discussed with and relevant correspondence sent to _ migration agent _significant other. what should i tick? are they responsible for finding a migration agent for me?

i did not answer that part since i only applied/processed my papers myself, if you are in an agency then provide their details.

thank you so much for all your help! :-)

Hi.

this might be off-topic (or just a slight).

has anyone applied for a tourist (subclass 676) visa?

what is the process like?

and what documents did you provide?

and to those who already got their registration number, what ID's did you present to AHPRA so you can get your registration?

thanks!

this should have the answer that you were a registered nurse (that is the category)what profession - 'nursing'' this pertains to your practise in your own country.

after 7 months of waiting (and I'd say it's worth it), I finally have my "in-principle registration!

just a little bit of background about me:

-Filipino citizen

-earned my BSN 2008 in the Philippines

-did not take NLE, took NCLEX right away

-granted H1B visa

-been working in the US since 2009

now, my AHPRA timeline:

-July 27, 2011 - sent my application to AHPRA - ACT

-August 2, 2011 - they received my documents. it took awhile because I sent it to the GPO address and not the physical address so postal service had to reroute the package

-November 22, 2011 - received an email saying my documents are complete and will be finalised

-late December - i emailed them for updates but my case officer was on-leave but the registration officer told me that my application is complete and is referred to the Director of Registrations for "approval consideration"

-January 31, 2012 - received an email saying that the Director of Registrations referred my application to the NMBA board meeting.

-February 16, 2012 - the meeting was held

-February 27, 2012 - received an email from the Director of Registrations saying that my application meets the standard of registrations, no bridging program required, just need to present myself to any AHPRA office and provide identification and original copies of documents.

Whew! that was a long but fruitful wait. Thank you Lord!

And God bless to everyone whose still waiting for eligibility!

I am really happy for you! super!!!!
