The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (Ahpra) remains open for business while in-person services are temporarily suspended in Canberra, Melbourne, Hobart and Darwin.
Ahpra is temporarily closing these offices as of 5pm local time on Friday 27 March as a precaution given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. This follows the closure of our Perth office to the public on Wednesday 25 March.
Ahpra is an essential service and we remain open. Please contact Ahpra on 1300 419 495 or contact us online to make alternative arrangements.
We’ve moved to remote working to be able to continue our important services while adhering to the government’s social distancing direction.
We have introduced changes to the practitioner presenting in person requirements and registrants are now able to upload forms online.
Like many organisations we need to restrict face-to-face interactions to protect us all and enable us to keep providing services during the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re doing our bit to help flatten the curve so our health system can cope and people get the care they need.
We hope to reopen our offices as soon as possible. We’ll continue to publish updates for practitioners on the COVID-19 updates page of our website.
