    Any Indian physios here who have got NZ registration? How difficult is it to get if u really work on it good? I have heard it is pretty difficult. Also, I want to know if it is declined once, how many times can u re-apply?

    Can one work as physio assisstant till the time he has no registration?

    How difficult or easy is it to get PR in NZ?

    Re: Any Indian physio here,who got NZ registration?Some PR queries?

    Hi guys,

    Its true that NZ Physio board doesn't recognise Physio qualification from India. So one has to study there or in Aus or UK before applying for registration coz there are good chances that the application will be denied. Anyone out there who has studied in India & applied for reg recently & got it?

    Re: Any Indian physio here,who got NZ registration?Some PR queries?

    Hi All
    I am an indian physio, passed out last year from my graduation and currently doing my masters in sports physiotherapy in UK. My course finishes in August this year and I want to go to NZ for job having already seen the job market for indian physios in UK . I do not have any work experience as I have moved to UK soon after completing my bachelors and m still doing my masters.
    Can anybody suggest me as to how and when should I apply for registration with NZ board of physiotherapy and about the competencies stuff?
    As a course of doing my masters I am having level 1&2 certificates in emergency aid and trauma management (UK), and will be having 100 hours of clinical placement.
    can anyone suggest how likely I am to get the registration in NZ?
    sorry about being spoon fed but I literally require the guidence from A to Z because I don't have anybody there to help me. Thanking you all in anticipation. Please please either reply here or you can also mail me at prabjeet_thephysio@yahoo.com

    waiting the responses

    Re: Any Indian physio here,who got NZ registration?Some PR queries?

    Hi,
    you find all information you need on the Physioboard's website:
    The Physiotherapy Board of New Zealand > Registration - Overseas Qualified Physiotherapists
    There are even application guideline notes: http://www.physioboard.org.nz/docs/A...March_2011.pdf

    However, I do not believe that the job situation here is any better than in England, especially if you have no work experience.

    Good luck,
    Fyzzio

    Re: Any Indian physio here,who got NZ registration?Some PR queries?

    Thanks a lot for the reply.., I have looked at the website which suggests at least that I can get registration. Can you please do me a favor by telling that in order to show the competencies, what documents or transcripts do I need to show as an evidence. Thanks in advance

    Hi,
    sorry, I wouldn't have a clue, as I used a lot of the documents from my PDR - which you won't have as you have never worked.
    Good luck,
    Fyzzio

    Re: Any Indian physio here,who got NZ registration?Some PR queries?

    Hi,
    Im currently pursuing my Post Graduate Diploma in Orthopedic Physiotherapy at Otago University, Dunedin, New Zealand.
    I had initially planned post studies to work for a year in New Zealand as a physio to gain more experience. But I learned through friends, seniors and staff working as a physio isnít as easy as I thought. The process of acquiring the licence can take around 2(more or less) years for Indian students and the board can dismiss our application. There is no guarantee about getting the registration. Also during this time we cannot work as physios. The reason behind this is the physio undergraduate studies in India are not recognized here and they individually assess our credentials. If we lack any as compared to the undergraduate studies here, we have to prove them by documents which I heard is a difficult task. Post that, they may ask us to take certain Tests to further prove certain credentials. There isnít any bridging or transitional course available for this and many physio applicants were asked to do the undergraduate course here. Earlier Indians werenít allowed to apply for registration. I have heard rumours that there is still bias. They look at credentials like Time management, autonomous practise ( i.e ruling out red flags), work experience in ortho, cardio, neuro, work experience as a registered physio, undergraduate syllabus (most imporatant), ielts (pls see FAQs on the nz physio board links that others have shared)

    I have heard some physios who acquired registration in Australia and then come to NZ and acquired registeration. While I have also heard some experienced physios who have done their Phd and Post doc acquire registeration after 2 yrs.

    To sum it up, its not a very easy route.
