Medical Board of Australia - Tips for renewing online

Tips for renewing online

Your renewal reminder (email or hard copy) from the Medical Board of Australia and AHPRA includes all the information you need for easy, online renewal of your general, specialist or non-practising registration:

  • Link to access online renewal 
  • Your 10 digit User ID 
  • Information on how to pay 
  • Details on how to reset your password

Email renewal reminders are sent out about eight weeks before your registration expires so make sure your contact details are up to date.

Using online renewal

To access online renewal you must:

  • know your User ID (located on your renewal reminder notice but is not needed if you log in using the link in your email reminder), and
  • have a current password. If you have forgotten your password, you can update it by using the password reset function (you must know your User ID).

You can pay securely by credit/debit card when you apply to renew registration online.

Confirmation of renewal

After about an hour, check your details on the national register of practitioners.

Remember you can continue to practise if your name is on the national register, even if your registration expiry date has passed.

Late fee

Renew your general, specialist or non-practising registration by 30 September to avoid paying a late fee.
