The full duration of the supervised practice in accordance with your approved New Zealand and Australia plan recognizes the registration of psychologists under the Trans Tasman Mutual Recognition Agreement (TTMR). For moving countries, local registration is still required, but this is usually a straight process obtained by providing proof of registration in the other country. Psychologists who use our services will have their qualifications checked to register (i.e. the license). Information is then provided to determine the application date and requirements. Assistance is provided through the application process. The visa application procedure and the board registration procedure are separate and the success of one does not automatically guarantee success in the other. For this reason, we recommend that you apply or do not implement a practice before your registration authorization is evaluated and confirmed. Please note that AHPRA and the Board of Directors cannot help you find a job or influence the results of the job. Applicants for registration under the Trans-Tasman Mutual Recognition must also ensure that they are familiar with registration standards, code of ethics, board guidelines and guidelines. In New Zealand, the title of psychologist is protected by law and the profession is regulated in accordance with the Health Professionals Insurance Act 2003 (HPCA).
