Australian-Trained Applicants

The Trans-Tasman Mutual Recognition Act (TTMRA) provides for the mutual recognition of regulatory standards adopted in Australia and New Zealand.

Please note, this only applies to the following scopes of practices:

  • Medical Imaging Technologist
  • Nuclear Medicine Technologist
  • Radiation Therapist

All AHPRA registered medical imaging and radiation therapy practitioners may apply for registration in New Zealand under the TTMRA pathway and your application will be treated the same as New Zealand graduates. 

If you hold an Australian qualification and are seeking registration in one of the following scopes of practice, you will need to apply according to the requirements for an overseas-trained applicant:

  • Sonography
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging Technology
