To practise as an osteopath in New Zealand you must be registered with the Osteopathic Council. You must also have a current Annual Practising Certificate (APC).
Please allow a minimum of 5 - 7 working days for the Council to process a fully completed application for registration, or for your APC. Note that the fee for registration is a one-off fee, but the APC must be paid for on an annual basis. The APC year runs from 1 April to 31 March of the following year.
Applicants who have a Master of Osteopathy conferred by Unitec should complete:
You must complete a request and consent form. The information on the form is used to perform a search using the New Zealand Police electronic vetting services.
For practitioners applying from overseas they must provide a certified police report from the country of residence. The certified report must be no older than six months at the time the application for registration is submitted.
A certified copy is a copy of the original that has been certified by a solicitor or notary public.
Please note that registration is not automatically granted. The Osteopathic Council must be confident that you are competent and fit for registration. The information you give us in your application form will assist the Council in our decision-making process.
