Online renewal of your general registration with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) is now open.
AHPRA is emailing registered optometrists to advise them to renew their annual registration.
Optometrists are required to log in on AHPRA’s website to renew their registration online.
To log in you need your AHPRA user ID, your date of birth, and your password.
Optometrists must renew before 30 November 2018 to avoid a late fee.
If you haven’t received a notification email from AHPRA prompting you to renew your registration, contact AHPRA on 1300 419 495.
