How much does AHPRA Registration cost?
For most practitioners, the standard registration fee is $795 for a three-year registration period. However, some practitioners may be eligible for a reduced fee of $397.50 for a three-year registration period if they are students, recent graduates, or if they are experiencing financial hardship.
Is there a AHPRA Registration renewal cost?
In addition to the registration fee, practitioners may also be required to pay an annual renewal fee of $100. This fee is used to maintain the practitioner’s registration and must be paid each year in order to continue practicing.
It’s important to note that these fees are subject to change, so it’s always best to check with AHPRA directly for the most up-to-date information.
Overall, the cost of AHPRA registration may seem like a costly expense, but it is a necessary step for health practitioners to take in order to practice legally in Australia. The fees help to fund the important work of AHPRA in regulating the health profession and ensuring that practitioners are meeting the required standards of practice.
