Step 1 – Overseas Registration Application Request Form

The first step in the application process is to logon to our website www.NMBI.ie and then download and complete the Overseas Application Request Form. You will find this form in the Registration/Trained outside Ireland section.
This form requires you to provide:
• Personal contact details
• Division(s) of the Register
• Your TRF number/OET Candidate Number, for Group 3 applicants only (see next page)
• Details of your debit/credit card so that the Overseas Registration Application fee can be paid.
Details of current NMBI fees are available on the form and also on the fees page of the NMBI website.

Step 2 – Overseas Registration Application Pack

Once NMBI processes your Overseas Registration Application Request Form and the assessment fee, they will issue you with an Overseas Registration Application Pack. You need to read and follow all the instructions within this pack carefully to avoid unnecessary delays in processing your application.
This form requires you to provide:

  • Personal details
  • Identity documents (such as Passport)
    Contact details
