Before you apply, evidence must be provided by your educational institute and BON that the program was accredited. Applications sent in before gaining that permission will be tossed.
You will most likely need to coordinate 12 to 18 items for evidence and documentation. This include,but is not limited to; 3-4 pieces of ID, statements from employers, course outlines, proof of clinical hours, secondary and tertiary transcripts, legal declarations, CV, recency of practice, ICHC, continuity of practice, etc.
If most everything is done correctly before sending it in, approval typically take 3 mints or so. Ãf there are issues and communication barriers are in play, it can take several month, even over a year and end up with disappointing results. The overwhelming reasons why qualified international applicant are denied, or asked to take expensive bridging programs, is die to lack of sufficient evidence and incomplete forms.
