Nurses - Anyone know how long it takes for..
1) NBSA to send verification to the ANMC?? I faxed the verification request to NBSA on 16/09 and posted the ANMC application form on 17/09 as it said to get the verification sorted out 1st.
and then, how long for
2) ANMC to process and register the application?
Its really getting to me now as we started this whole process in April and have still got to wait until registered with the ANMC before we can even submit our Visa app online. AARRGGGHHHHHHH - everything seems to be taking an age to do
Thanks for any help

You have my deepest sympathies, I applied the end of May to NBSA for the modified assessment A, it was acknowledged 3rd June and I was advised that it would take up to 4 months to process. I rang on Friday as it was then about 16 weeks since I applied and was told that the applications received at the end of May had been processed and that mine would be looked at next week, at last!!!!! When I have looked on beupdate website, it looks as though once registered with NBSA and you send off your ANMC stuff it only takes about 4 weeks to be complete the registration process. I have made a friend in Melbourne as I was thinking about applying there last year and she recruits nurses and midwives, she has said that NBSA and ASPC are renowned for the slow processing of registrations and visas, all other states will rush them through as they are desperate and don't want to lose applicants through frustration. Reading your application I am not sure what you mean about the ANMC sorting out the NBSA application, PM me if you want.

Well, because we went through the full skills assessment with the NBSA, and thats now been completed, I know that , in theory, registering with the ANMC should only take 4 weeks...
What i was hoping is that, because the NBSA have to send verification to the ANMC (as part of the ANMC application), that they dont take another 3 months to do that - otherwise the NBSA will be holding up the ANMC!!!!
If all goes according to plan then Im hoping that the NBSA won't mess about and will just send the verification straight to the ANMC in a few days. Then we should be able to submit the Visa application 4-ish weeks from now. Fingers crossed any way. Hope you get your NBSA reg soon.
I applied to Queensland NB first, got the registration in 2 weeks then applied to SA NB which only took 2 weeks. Bad time of year to apply as everyones registration is due at the same time i.e. now. Cost more money but fairly quick. Because i am here already on a different visa i have not had to go through the ANMC until i want residency. Are you the main applicant on the visa or could you come over as a spouse and apply that way.
NBSA sure dont hurry along; my application took 20 weeks; but because NMC goofed up, that was 3-4 weeks longer than i expected.. Still, i am "eligible for registration"; so the visa application can go in, and with the house sold etc, i can start planning my new life in Adelaide:).
My mate applied to Wait Awhile, western aus, and that took even longer!!
I reckon NBSA just want to be thorough, safe and sound; which is not a bad thing, just infuriating for us immigrants!
Have a great day, yawl
Hi - are you on the employer sponsored visa? My hubby is the nurse (im just in charge of all the paperwork etc!!) we are going to apply for the 175 independant , which i'm pretty certain means we have to have registered with the ANMC before applying for the visa.

Jane - have you registered yet with ANMC? - which visa are you going on?
Sorry for all the Qs - i just want to check i'm doing this right as we've not got an agent.
The way i had it in my head is that we have to 1) = register with NBSA, 2)Register with ANMC, and then 3)Apply for the 175 visa.
Does that sound right?
I am a nurse and applied for the 175 cisa, just been granted!!! I did the online assessment and didn't register with the Nursing Board. I can't understand why you would have to register with them and pay for a practising certificate and not be in the country!! I had enough points for the 175 visa and think that was why I didn't need to register with the Nursing Board.
Athough I had previously been registered inNew Zealand and there is a Trans Recognition Scheme that allows you to register in Aussie states without having to get verifications from NMC ie they will accept the original paperwork in NZ.
Try the online visa assessment first on the australian immigration webpage first.
i am going on a 457 business sponsored (temp) visa;
so did the modified assessment only with NBSA;
The application form for assessment, which is on the website, and the ANMC website state that temporary visa doesnt require ANMC assessment aswell. The issue will be up again if i apply for PR in the future!
Why do it this way? Speedy exit from the (y)UK....:)
Hope that helps
I'm with you jane, going on the 457 visa, hope to arrive just in time for some sun!!! I didn't need to apply for the ANMC assessment.
