Request a letter of professional standing (LOPS)

Registering interstate or in another country? Complete the electronic form below if you need us to send a letter of professional standing to another registration authority. Note that the letter is only valid for 3 months from date of issue. There is a $70.00 fee for the LOPS service (and an additional $10 fee for each extra letter sent to another registration authority on the same date). We will email you payment details after you lodge the LOPS request.

The LOPS will be issued within 5 business days of receiving payment, and it will contain:
  • your name and address
  • details of your veterinary qualification
  • your registration number and registration history
  • if you are a specialist or not
  • if your registration has any conditions, and
  • general information about your standing as a veterinary practitioner while registered in Victoria.
