There are two routes to get registered in New Zealand as an overseas educated applicant. See more information on our New Zealand physiotherapy registration page: Physiotherapy Registration in New Zealand
- Australian registered physiotherapists currently registered with General (unconditional) registration and holding entitlement to practise in Australia, are entitled to seek registration in New Zealand under the Trans-Tasman Mutual Recognition Act 1997 (“The TTMR Act”).
- All other internationally qualified physiotherapists must seek registration under the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003 (HPCA Act).
We also maintain a useful section in our Physio Forum dedicated to working in New Zealand as a physiotherapist. See more here: Working as a physiotherapist in New Zealand
