Podiatrists with qualifications from outside New Zealand


If you're making enquiries from a country other than Australia, contact the Podiatrists Board of New Zealand to find out whether your qualification comes from an Approved School.


If you are currently registered as a podiatrist/chiropodist in Australia, you may be able to apply for registration in New Zealand under the Trans Tasman Mutual Recognition Act 1977 (TTMRA). Find out more at the New Zealand Podiatrists Board.


You'll also want to make contact with New Zealand Immigration to obtain a visa.
