Specific registration

Applicants who do not qualify for general registration may be able to apply for specific registration. The requirements for specific registration are detailed in section 7 of the Veterinary Practice Act 1997. If granted, specific registration is only ever granted for a maximum of 12 months. Specific registrants who wish to have another 12-month period of registration must submit a new application to the Board. Specific registrants can qualify for general registration by completing a qualification recognised by the Board, e.g. the National Veterinary Examination administered by the Australasian Veterinary Boards Council.

If you are applying for specific registration, you must submit your application at least 3 months before the date you wish to be registered. This is so the Board has time to assess and consider your application.

To apply for specific registration, you must submit a complete application with all the required documents listed on the application form.

You can submit your application by email or post:

  • Email [email protected] (documents must be good quality colour PDF files)
  • Post to Vetboard Victoria, Level 14 10-16 Queen Street, Melbourne VIC 3000 AUSTRALIA
